Bell Gardens Reorganizes City Council

By EGP News Report

(EGPNews) – Bell Gardens City Councilman Pedro Aceituno was named the city’s new mayor on Jan. 17 through a majority vote of the city council. He replaces Councilwoman Jennifer Rodriguez, who he campaigned with during their successful reelection contest last year. Both were sworn-in for new terms earlier this month.

This is Aceituno’s fourth term; he’s entering his 13th year on the council. He previously served as mayor from 2006 to 2007.

The city council also voted to keep Sergio Infanzon as Mayor Pro-Tem. Infanzon is the junior member of the council. He was elected in 2010 but first joined the Bell Gardens City Council as an appointee to complete the remainder of former councilman Mario Beltran’s term.
