Three newly elected Huntington Beach City Council members were sworn in Monday, Dec. 7 – and one of them, local celebrity Tito Ortiz, immediately became mayor pro tem.
Replacing Lyn Semeta, Kim Carr was named mayor in a unanimous vote. Jill Hardy, who termed out this year, transferred her pro tem title to Carr in October.
Generally, Huntington Beach rotates through mayors every year, with mayor pro tem as a stepping stone.
