Mayor's Message
As 2020 draws to a close, I want to thank each of you for being such an integral part of the Pasadena spirit. Our community has seen unimaginable challenges this year, but through it all, our residents, businesses and community partners have graciously given their time, talent and treasure for those in need.

During the Christmas season, let us be reminded of Isaiah 9:6: For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Leading our local government is a privilege by which I am deeply humbled. As we look forward to the new year, may we continue to place our trust and direction upon His shoulders for an even stronger Pasadena in the years to come!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New Year.
