At their annual reorganization, the San Marino City Council chose members Richard Sun as the new City mayor and Richard Ward as vice mayor among its members March 14.
In a Patch video interview, Sun answered questions about city taxes, financial sustainability, relations between the Chinese and non-Chinese community in San Marino and the upcoming Centennial, among other things.
In this final part of the series (seen in the video above) we asked Sun what other goals he has for his one-year term as San Marino's Mayor.
"A mayor, basically, is like the chairperson of a corporation--I like to take the leadership," Sun told Patch, adding he wants to work together with the City Council, staff and residents.
“I personally like to voice the citizens’ questions, opinions or if any citizen has a problem they can always have direct access to me.
“My attitude here is I see myself as a servant…and I’d like to see all the City staff have the same kind of attitude. ... We are here to serve our public.”
See the rest of Sun’s response in the video above.
