Good Bye Mayor Goethals … Hello Mayor Lim

David Lim

Incoming Mayor David Lim was the focus of the “Pizza with the Mayor” event this past December 12th.  This gathering serves both as a “Thank You” to the San Mateo United Homeowners Association (SMUHA) representatives, including our BHNA rep, and an opportunity to meet and hear remarks from our city’s new mayor.  It’s a great opportunity to reflect upon the concluding year, and celebrate the promise of what lies ahead for our city.

Kicking off the event, SMUHA’s vice-president Anna Kuhre thanked all the neighborhood association representatives for their efforts and commitment to improve San Mateo.  She then presented the Representative of the Year honor to Greg St. Clair of Fiesta Gardens for his involvement in a variety of issues.

SMUHA President Ben Toy, along with Mr. St. Clair, presented gifts of appreciation to incoming Mayor David Lim and his family, acknowledging the tremendous commitment the family of a public servant makes.

Following the presentation of these gifts, Lim shared his thoughts as he begins his second term as Mayor.  He views his position as one in which he works on behalf of the city’s citizens and focuses on collective efforts designed to better San Mateo.  He complimented the working relationships within the city, the city staff, and City Manager, in particular.  Lim additionally thanked the SMUHA representatives for their commitment to the city.

NOTE: To ask Lim questions in regard to our own neighborhood and region, make sure to attend the February 16th BHNA General Meeting as noted on the front of this newsletter!
