Mayor's Message
Welcome to one of the busiest months of the year! May is stacking up to be an exciting and eventful time in Pasadena: Election Day, Mother’s Day, Strawberry Festival , graduations…the list goes on and on. I encourage you to check our website calendar and social media for updates and news.

While it may be easy for us to become overwhelmed with all the activities this month, one thing remains the same - Pasadena’s amazing community spirit and hard-working residents always come together to make every event shine.

Speaking of shining events, the 2019 Ms. Pasadena Senior Pageant crowned a new queen recently. Congratulations to winner, Alice Moore! Special Honorary Queen status was also presented to Barbara Sitzman, who will be retiring as Volunteer Pasadena Manager this month. The pageant theme was Age of Elegance; I’m so proud of all the contestants and our hardworking teams at Madison Jobe and the Pasadena Convention Center for their dedication and enthusiasm.
Wrapping up the month of May, we also congratulate the Class of 2019! Best wishes to all our graduating high school seniors. Information on graduation ceremonies can be found at: and
#ProgressInMotion Industry News
Congratulations to the LyondellBasell Bayport Complex on their 50-year anniversary. The Bayport Complex has significantly impacted the landscape of the Bayport industrial area and is a key part of the Gulf Coast economy. Mayor Wagner, Congressman Brian Babin and leaders from surrounding communities gathered together to commemorate the special day and thank the company, not only for contributions to our job market, but for their support, donations and volunteerism with events like the City of Pasadena’s Can-Do Food Drive and Team Up to Clean Up .

Mayor Wagner was recently invited to meet with Governor Greg Abbott and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley where they discussed Pasadena’s role in our national economy. Governor Abbott praised Mayor Wagner on his vision for a unified and growing Pasadena.

After the Gavel
You may recall that our City Hall building was closed for several days in April due to a water main break and subsequent electrical issues. Mayor Wagner called a special council meeting to present two Emergency Readings that allowed for repairs without increasing costs in the 2018-2019 budget. The readings were passed and critical repairs have begun.
