Gonzales named Azusa Mayor Pro-Tem

Azusa Councilman Robert Gonzales was named Mayor Pro-Tem at Monday’s council meeting. Uriel Macias held the post for the last year.

Azusa’s Mayor Pro-Tem title is a rotation between council members and Gonzales has never held the distinction prior to this. He will serve as the Mayor Pro-Tem for one year, according to city documents.

Gonzales lost his a bid for the City Council in 2007, coming in third behind Macias and councilman Angel Carrillo.

He was appointed to the council that year to replace the seat vacated by Mayor Joe Rocha who went from his council position to Mayor in 2007.

Gonzales then had to run again for council in 2009 and won reelection.
