The Cerritos Mayor and City Council as well as Staff and Cerritos Commissioners gathered for a recognition reception for Supervisor Don Knabe this past June 9th, 2016, held at the Cerritos Library.

During the council meeting, a video was shown commemorating Knabe’s term as Mayor and Councilman for the City from 1980 to 1988.

“We have the honor and pleasure of having Supervisor Don Knabe with us this evening. Before Don shares a bit his remarks with us,” said Mayor George Ray, “I just want to express my gratitude for the outstanding representation he has provided to our city and to all the communities within his district.”

Knabe’s dedicated efforts on behalf of this region has stimulated the economic development, increased funding for law enforcement, and resulted in renewed youth literacy and arts enrichment programs.  Local families appreciate the Knabe Fishing Derby, held for the last 20 years.

“Cerritos is myself and Julie’s home town,” said Knabe, “I’ve had an incredible run, serving 2 million residents in 28 cities for 34 years, it has been a great experience,” taking a break to steady his voice and gather his words,” I have been visiting all of the cities and this is the toughest one to say good-bye to.”

Picture is pathetic and rude. Why the sexual divide between men and woman? Why all republicans and no democrats? Julie Knabe was born and raised in the city of Long Beach. She dated every dude on the varsity teams. In return, pre-employment era was primarily based around the executives in Long Beach. The ones who she dated. She is too old to have been raised in Dairy Valley, said area was not even conceived yet. Look at the track record for Don Knabe, how he voted on LA County Board of Supervisors, he’s abstained on many issues including the Mideast… Read more »

Mr. D. Knabe did a very nice job rehabbing the Cerritos Regional Park. Much improvement. Can’t say much for the art public places, as some of the pieces in the park, are not that fantastic. There could be some drastic improvements to the Lake; plus bring us more diversified recreational programs to the park for adults and seniors. Nothing for the rotting RV Industry, which was never tapped in to by him. Knabes were always above the RV industry, thumbs down to RV owners. Knabe left being Cerritos Retired Mayor, left the city with the pink elephant ( Cerritos Center… Read more »
