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.”
