“The City of West Covina City Council has decided to go in a different direction. I am proud of the progress and accomplishments that I have achieved for the City these past years. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the City of West Covina over the past 16 years, and I wish to thank all the hard-working and talented City employees who have dedicated their lives to make West Covina the great City it is today and will further be in the future. West Covina will always be in my heart,” stated Chung.
