Mayor Sarno states, “Thank you to my family, my beautiful wife Carla and daughter Cassandra. Chiara, who is a special education teacher, couldn’t leave her classroom but sent her love too. Special thanks to my dedicated staff for organizing this surprise gathering, which included some of my favorite homemade foods, especially my wife’s homemade fried meatballs. I also want to thank Councilor Maria Perez, Maria Ligus, Jose Claudio, Rosa Espinosa and the wonderful team at New North Citizens Council for stopping by and surprising me, it really means a lot, especially the card from the children! This was very heartwarming and heartfelt – the best meeting of my day! 60 is the new 40 and I feel great and ready to go! Thank you everyone for thinking of me!”
Judy Matt and the Spirit of Springfield also dropped by with a birthday cake.
