    With the promotion of Mayor Pro Tem Hildy Stern to mayor, comes a new era of inclusion, logic, heart and a commitment to doing the right thing. I hope that all counsel members will support the new mayor in her efforts to lead Manhattan Beach into becoming a more enlightened community.

    Thank you so much, Mayor Hadley, for your dedication to improving Manhattan Beach! Your common sense approach and grace under pressure were truly admirable qualities and I felt supported as a resident and business owner.

    Hildy Stern, you have huge shoes to fill, but I know that Mayor Hadley and the other Councilmembers will be by your side as well! Good luck!

    Many congratulations to Hildy Stern as she becomes Mayor tonight! I know she will do her best to bring us together and will represent all of Manhattan Beach with grace. I also want to sincerely thank Mayor Hadley for her dedication and service to the City. As many have pointed out, your responsiveness was impressive and appreciated. I know how much time that takes. We may not agree on how best to govern our city, but I know we both agree it is an honor to serve.

    I have heard now from multiple people that they are attempting to post or thinking that have posted comments here that are not being retained in the system. I don't know if this has been a problem before, or if this comment system or this glitch is new, but unfortunately the system does not appear to be capturing all the comments. Can you please look into it? Thank you.

    I commend Mayor Hadley on her brilliant and thoughtful ways she handled her job. There were difficult and, often heated, discussions, often emotional and, sometimes not factual, items on the Agenda. Mayor Hadley showed extrodinary calm and stood firmly on the ground on serving our community. I applaud her steadfastness and ability to provide strong leadership and not be swayed by an amazing amount of unfair critisim. A heartfelt Thank you! Good luck & Good Job! 😃 Amanda Hunter
