Mayor Sandoval



Tim Sandoval moved to Pomona when he was just nine years old. Even as a child, he knew that a community as richly diverse as Pomona was capable of amazing things. As Pomona High’s class speaker, he defended the character of the school and the surrounding community in an impassioned year-end speech. He attended Montvue Elementary, Emerson Middle School, and Pomona High School before finishing his education at University of California, Riverside.

After graduating, Tim returned to Pomona to help others in our community to access college as well. He led Pomona Valley Community Development Center’s youth programs, and then taught English at a nearby school. In 2001, Tim became a founding member of Bright Prospect, a mentoring organization that has helped more than two thousand low-income youth become part of the first generation of their family to complete their Bachelor’s degrees. Many of these youth come to share Tim’s passion for Pomona, returning after college to give back to the community.

Council Member Steve Lustro

District 5

Steve Lustro small

Steve Lustro has been a resident of Pomona since 1982.  He grew up in Monterey Park, attending Repetto Elementary and Mark Keppel High School.  Steve’s interest in his neighborhood and community was evident when, at nine years of age, he wrote to City Hall and asked that additional streetlights be installed on his block and that “stop” signs be erected at a nearby intersection for increased safety.  The City found the requests to be warranted and both requests were honored.  Steve’s first foray into public service was as a two-year member of the Monterey Park Youth Commission while he was in high school.

After being involved in various aspects of running a small, family-owned building maintenance business for nearly a decade, Steve made a life-changing decision to pursue a longtime passion – Urban and Regional Planning – at Cal Poly Pomona.  Upon graduation, Steve joined the Community Development Department staff at the City of Claremont, first as the City’s sole Code Enforcement Officer and then in progressively more responsible positions in the Planning Division.  In 2000, he pursued a promotional opportunity as City Planner in the City of Montclair.  Seven years later, Steve was promoted to Director of Community Development, overseeing the Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement functions of the City.  After nearly 25 years of public service, Steve retired in April 2016.

Steve has been married to Sharon Weltmer Lustro since January 1983.  Sharon grew up in Honolulu, Long Beach, and Fullerton and is an alumna of Cal State Fullerton's Business program.  Before retiring in 2019, she taught English as a Second Language and citizenship preparation classes at Chino Valley Adult School.  Steve and Sharon are the proud parents of two adult children, both products of Pomona schools and UC Berkeley.  Olivia is an assistant ER clinical director at Kaiser Permanente, and Drew is a software engineer.

The Mayor is the presiding officer of the City Council and is elected for a four year term, on November of even-numbered years, pursuant to the City Charter. Mayoral candidates are nominated and elected at-large.

Councilmembers are elected for over-lapping four-year terms. Each Councilmember is nominated by and represents the district in which he or she lives. The City of Pomona is divided into six Council Districts. The City Council selects one of its members as Vice-Mayor, excluding the mayor, every eight months.

General Municipal Elections are held on the First Tuesday after the First Monday in November of even-numbered years.

City Council Meetings

A vital part of the democratic process that is integral in the conduct of the City's affairs, are the regular monthly meetings of the Pomona City Council. It is here that the laws, policies and basic program decisions are made for governing Pomona. The City Council provides staff with goals and direction that is then implemented on a day-to-day basis by the employees and officials of the City.

Regular meetings of the City Council are held the 1st and 3rd Mondays at 6:45 p.m. in the City Council Chambers located between City Hall and the Library. The City Council considers certain permitted personnel matters, litigation and property acquisition in Closed Session meetings that begin at 5:30 p.m.

Residents are encouraged to attend City Council meetings to become better informed about how the City of Pomona works. Items for review and approval of the City Council are generally divided into several categories, including the Consent Calendar, Public Hearings, Old Business and New Business. Not all of these various categories will have an item at any given City Council meeting.

Public Participation

Copies of the Council Agenda are available at the City Clerk's Office, at City hall, on Thursday afternoon of the week prior to the Council Meeting and in the lobby of the Council Chambers during the meeting. A complete Agenda packet is also available for review at the Reference Desk on the main level of the Pomona Public Library and at the Council meeting.

Residents and concerned citizens may provide the Council with input on particular programs through the Public Hearing process, and through the Citizen Participation portion of each City Council meeting. During Citizen Participation, each person who wishes to address the City Council on an item not on the agenda may do so for three (3) minutes. Anyone wishing to present an oral communication should come forward to a microphone, be recognized by the Mayor and state his or her name. All remarks should be addressed to the Mayor. The City Council may direct staff to prepare a response at a later date.
