IMPERIAL — Geoff Dale, a local businessman and native of this city, was sworn in as a city councilman Wednesday.
He replaces Tom Mazeroll, who resigned after purchasing a home outside the city limits.
Dale, who took over the family business of Jim Dale Distributing in El Centro after his father retired, said he is looking forward to serving his community and is particularly enthusiastic about becoming closely involved with the city Redevelopment Agency.
He sees Imperial as a thriving bedroom community with immense potential for growth in the business sector. He is looking forward to working with the soon-to-be formed beautification committee, which he thinks will be a driving force for the people of the community to show pride in their city.
Dale, 35, married with two young boys, credits his wife, Linsey, for the greater part of his professional success in the Imperial Valley.
