Members of the community turned out last week for a special meeting of the Montebello Unified School District Board to congratulate Ed Chau, who resigned his board seat after being elected to represent the 49th District in the State Assembly.

Chau told the crowd it had been an honor serving on the board and that he had always felt right at home at the district office.

“Together we have made substantial inroads,” Chau said to the crowd filled with district employees and community members. “We have accomplished a great deal,” he said, highlighting items he said the board achieved during the last year.

He went on to say that since the school district overlaps with portions of the district he represents, including Monterey Park and Montebello, he would be around and would continue to work with the district to help educate the area’s children.

The Montebello Chamber of Commerce and the Commerce City Council were among the groups that honored the new assemblyman by presenting him with certificates of appreciation.

“Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this family,” Chau said.

Superintendent Robert Henke told Chau that he would always be part of the MUSD family.

At the same meeting, the board voted to keep Hector A. Chacon on as school board president, a post that usually rotates each year among the board members.
