As an expression of appreciation on behalf of the residents of the 10th Council District, City Council President Herb Wesson hosted his annual City Employees Appreciation Luncheon.
Over 400 attended the event, which honored city employees who have made a special effort to serve the community. They ranged from firefighters and police officers to workers from street services, cultural affairs, sanitation, and recreation and parks.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to the many employees, representing a wide array of departments and agencies, who make a special effort to solve problems and deliver the services that our residents deserve and expect,” said Wesson. “Their work often goes unrecognized. So, it’s important to acknowledge their hard work and their many contributions.”
An important feature and annual tradition of the event is that Wesson and his Council staff put on their aprons and serve food to the city employees. Also joining the Wesson crew in working the food service line was Wesson’s wife, Fabian Wesson. The event took place at the Council President’s District Office.
