 On Tuesday, residents filled the City Council 
Chambers to honor departing council members 
and welcome the city’s newly elected officials.

 The meeting was the first held since the April 10th 
election and began with public comment where 
residents thanked Mayor John Buchanan, Councilmember 
Mary Ann MacGillivray and City Treasurer 
George Enyedi for their years of pubic service. 
Buchanan retired from the council after two terms, 
George Enyedi chose not to run for re-election and 
MacGillivray failed in her re-election bid.

 Resolutions honoring their service were presented 
to Buchanan, MacGillivray and Enyedi from Congressman 
David Dreier, LA County Mayor Michael 
Antonovich and State Assembly member Steve 
Donnelly. Shortly thereafter, the City Clerk Nancy 
Shollenberger swore in the newly elected councilpersons 
and the new City Treasurer Richard Mays. 
Councilmen Chris Koerber, John Harabedian and 
John Capoccia were all smiles as they stood with 
their family members and were sworn in. 

 City Clerk Nancy Shollenberger, who ran unopposed, 
announced that this would be her last term 
as City Clerk. She deemed this term as her, “swan 
song”. Shollenberger has been city clerk since 1984. 

 Once the new council was seated, the members 
selected the leadership of the council for the next 
year. Josh Moran ascended to the position of Mayor 
and Councilperson Nancy Walsh was elected as 
Mayor Pro-Tem.

 When the formalities were completed, it was business 
as usual. There was a brief discussion and vote 
on the contracting out of management services of 
the city pool, which was approved unanimously. 
And just before adjournment and the traditional 
cake cutting ceremonies, Councilman Chris Koerber 
asked that the issue of an RFP for City Attorney 
services be put on the agenda for the next meet.

 The meeting was then adjourned and a reception 
followed. S. Henderson/MVNews

PUSD AND SACRAMENTO Story /Photo by Susan Henderson

The sharp edge of the Sacramento 
axe is swinging in the direction of 
Sierra Madre School projects, and 
parents have decided to organize 
and make certain that if cuts are 
made, they are handled fairly. Of 
primary concern is the halt in construction 
on the new Middle School 
which was torn down in 2011.

 At a planned meeting of the SMS 
School Site Council on Wednesday, 
parents were surprised to 
learn that the Pasadena Unified 
School District would not recieve 
approximately $60 million dollars 
in matching funds from the 
State. Those dollars were to match 
the money generated by the bond 
measure passed in 2010, Measure 
TT, for school construction. As a 
result, according to PUSD Communication’s 
Director Adam Wolfson, 
this has forced the District to 
decrease it’s construction budget by 
20% for all District projects.

Parents who attended the meeting, 
already frustrated at Sacramento’s 
failure to process the plans for the 
new facility, were shocked to hear 
the PUSD plans and have decided 
to make certain that their voices are 
heard. One of the very troubling 
aspects of the proposed budget 
cuts, according to one member, is 
the fact that “as a bond-only funded 
project we should not be impacted 
by the state cuts and subject to the 
same cuts as other projects”. 

(continued on page 3)


The greatest impact of the proposed cuts will be on the Middle 
School. Construction began in 2011 with the razing of the existing 
building. The site is baron today (above) and students 
attend classed in trailers which are supposed to be temporary.
