“I’m excited and thrilled to accept this huge responsibility. I have some large shoes to fill in terms of replacing Ted Van Nahl,” Herlihy stated. “Hopefully, I can help keep the City moving forward under the Mayor’s solid leadership. This is an historic period for the City, as progress is being made on several fronts that will have lasting impact on improving the quality of life here.”
