Both in their first term, former Mayor Pro Tem John Tomlinson and Councilman Richard Viczorek were chosen unanimously by the Dana Point City Council Tuesday night to serve as mayor and mayor pro tem, respectively, for the 2015-2016 year.
Toward the end of the meeting, outgoing Mayor Carlos Olvera began the council’s reorganization by nominating Tomlinson to take his place, followed by Tomlinson nominating Viczorek for the mayor pro tem position.
During Olvera’s recognition by the council, Tomlinson praised him for his hard work, his passion for history and his dedication to the city, missing only one ribbon cutting during his time as mayor.
Tomlinson and Viczorek will now serve one-year terms as mayor and mayor pro tem. The City Council’s next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 19 at 6 p.m.
