A new mayor will take over the lead on Aliso Viejo’s council following the holiday break, city officials said.

Now former Mayor Pro-Tem Phil Tsunoda takes over for Mayor Carmen Cave. The change was part of the city’s annual reorganization conducted during the Dec. 4 council meeting.

Councilmember Bill Phillips takes over as Mayor Pro Tem, officials said.

Their colleagues, according to officials, selected the council members for the one-year posts.

This will be the second mayoral stint for Council Member Tsunoda who served as Mayor in 2010 and as Mayor Pro Tem this year. Council Member Phillips served as Mayor Pro Tem in 2012.

During the council's first meeting of the year on Jan. 8, Mayor Carmen Cave will be recognized for her service as Mayor this year, officials said.

Despite the fact that the voters have spoken and demanded change, we see that the same 3 councilmen continue to take turns controlling the council decisions. Here we go again, with Tsunoda acting as Carmen Cave's proxy.

Corrine has an interesting point. What good do elections do us if a biased majority continues to push their own agenda. Who knows what deals have been struck out of the public view to ensure that Cave, Tsunoda and Phillips continue taking turns as they do. http://ocpoliticsblog.com/musical-chairs-on-the-aliso-viejo-city-council-amount-to-more-bad-leadership/
