Peter Chan stated he is one of the five Councilmembers who works with the staff and the residents to make Monterey Park a better city. The Council, city manager and staff work together to make things happen.

Four years ago the City Hall was not opened five days a week because of budget cuts. We are working together to make good things happen at City Hall. We have a balanced budget with over $28 million in reserves.

The library has extended hours but we need to raise more funds to improve our library. The police department is working hard to keep us safe. They are educating the residents on traffic safety.

The fire department has a new engine and the station at Garfield and Elmgate will be rebuilt as a two-story building.  They work for our safety. Our fire department has the city rated as a Class One that reduces the cost of our fire / home owner’s insurance.

We have spent $5 million to improve our parks. We have trimmed the trees and resurfaced many streets in the city. We have replaced many old water and sewer lines. We are working on synchronizing the lights on Atlantic from Hellman to Newmark. We are doing everything we can for the people to make our city safe and clean.

He spoke about the shopping cart ordinance and closing down illegal hotels.  He spoke about the new hotels on Atlantic that will bring in more taxes to the city.  The Market Place will also bring in more sales and property taxes as well as jobs to our city. He has held three Town Hall meetings in the neighborhoods to meet with the residents. He has an opened door policy.

Peter Chan wants to continue to make Monterey Park a safe place to eat, shop and live. He asked the voters to support him for four more years to accomplice what our residents want him to do.  Have a good night.
