Mayor Terry Tornek delivered his first State of the City Address on Wednesday night in a formal program in the McKinley School Gymnasium, and befitting the school’s location, the short address was heavily mathematical in nature.

The budget-focused message outlined the City’s sources and uses of funds and provided a brief examination of the city’s budget.

FULL REPORT EARLY THURSDAY MORNING

The audience, comprised largely of government and education officials and civic leaders, was given a chance to ask the Mayor questions, and a handful did.

The event will “give Mayor Tornek the opportunity to begin a dialogue with the public about the city’s financial condition and its ability to provide the kind of services we expect,” a city representative said.

Vice Mayor Gene Masuda served as emcee for the evening.

Students from the McKinley School sang and danced before the start of the address. The venue is a new multi-purpose gymnasium built by the city in cooperation with the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD).
