A Holiday Message from Mayor Susan Rohan
Mayor-CORN.jpgAs this year draws to a close, I want to wish you and your family the very happiest of holidays and the best for the New Year.
For me, the holidays are a time to reflect on the things that have real meaning. These include family, friends and the great community where we live.

You are what makes Roseville such a great place to live and work. The extremely well-attended events in our new Vernon Street Town Square, like the Christmas Tree Lighting, show the vibrant community spirit we have. The hard work of our non-profit community or those who volunteer to help those in need continue to inspire.

I'm looking forward with excitement to what 2014 brings us. Roseville is a city continually looking to the future. In my view, our future looks bright.

On behalf of myself and my colleagues on the City Council, I offer each of you my best wishes for happy holidays.
