Huang Set To Be City’s Next Mayor

Dr. Steven Huang

Dr. Steven Huang is expected to be appointed the city’s next mayor at the city council’s next meeting at City Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Huang, adentist, has spent the last year serving as vice mayor under Mayor Steve Talt.

Council member Gretchen Shepherd Romey, who received the largest number of votes at the Nov. 2017 election, is expected to be appointed vice mayor. Shepherd Romey was elected at that election along with Susan Jakubowski and Ken Ude.

San Marino’s mayor is chosen annually by the city council. Aside from its ceremonial standing, the position is distinguished from other council positions by the mayor’s responsibility of setting meeting agendas.
