Placido sworn in as Alhambra’s next mayor, says city is in great shape

Dr. Steven Placido has replaced Barbara Messina as Alhambra's next mayor, swearing in during a ceremony Monday evening. Stephen Sham was also sworn in as vice mayor, replacing Placido. Council members rotate key city positions every nine months.

The two council members took their oaths and shared a few words of gratitude. As to what he intends to accomplish as mayor, Placido mainly assured residents that the city is in good condition.

“Alhambra’s in great shape,” Placido said. “We have a balanced budget. We’re moving forward with keeping the town a great place to live and work, raise a family.”

City Council also approved a contract with the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce to oversee the construction of the city’s 2014 Rose Parade float. Council allotted $5,000 for the sponsor fee, while the float itself will cost $85,000.
