News: Worthy-Executive Committee Member Daryl Hofmeyer Retires from Public Service
Executive Committee Member and Paramount Vice Mayor Daryl Hofmeyer retired from public service last month, concluding a 13-year career advancing the missions of both the City of Paramount and the California JPIA.
Recognized by the Authority during a virtual Executive Committee meeting on March 25, 2020, Hofmeyer was thanked for his leadership on improving and expanding services to Authority members.
“Daryl has served a critical role as an Executive Committee member, particularly in sharing his perspective as a city leader, to help the Authority better anticipate and meet our member agencies’ needs,” said California JPIA President and Duarte City Councilmember Margaret Finlay.
Hofmeyer was elected to the Paramount City Council and began serving as Paramount’s representative on the Board of Directors for the Authority in 2003. In 2014, he was appointed as a member of the Executive Committee.
“I have learned a lot of things about cities’ responses to risks and their responsibilities,” Hofmeyer said as he reflected on his Authority experience. He is proud to have championed data-driven efforts related to issues such as sidewalk safety. “The City of Paramount, like other member cities, took advantage of the Authority’s sidewalk inspection and maintenance programs.”
In addition to being a member of the Executive Committee, Hofmeyer has chaired the Budget Committee and served on the Claims, Personnel, and Appeals Committees.
“I want to thank Daryl for his many contributions to the Authority over the years. On behalf of all the California JPIA staff, I wish him all the best as he retires,” said CEO Jon Shull.
As Hofmeyer segues into his retirement, he anticipates missing working with the Authority leadership and staff in forwarding the Authority’s impactful work.
“I just can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed being part of the Authority,” Hofmeyer said. “It is one of the classiest organizations in California. I’m going to miss the California JPIA; there’s no doubt about that.”
Although retired from public service, Hofmeyer plans to continue operating his business, Romberg Milling.
Hofmeyer and Curtis Morris, former Executive Committee President and San Dimas Mayor, both recently retired and were recognized during the virtual Executive Committee meeting on March 25. Learn more about Morris and his contributions to the Authority in this article from our March newsletter.
