Tustin’s Letita Clark was named Mayor by her city council peers last night, making her the first Democrat to hold that seat in recent memory (or ever?) and the first woman of color to be mayor of a city in Orange County.
She posted his on her Facebook feed:
It’s official. Tonight, I was sworn into my second term on the Tustin City Council and selected by my colleagues to serve as the next Mayor of Tustin. It is truly an honor to serve as Mayor of the city that has given so much to my family and me. Thank you all for your confidence in my leadership! I am looking forward to working with all of my colleagues. A special congratulations to the new Mayor Pro Tem Tustin Councilman Austin Lumbard
Tustin’s come so far from the divisive days of Jerry Amante; we wish Mayor Clark much success in her term.
