Irvine City Council Names Kuo as Vice Mayor
IRVINE, Ca - Tonight, the Irvine City Council selected Councilmember Anthony Kuo to serve as the Vice Mayor.
"I love Irvine, and the many opportunities I have to serve," Kuo said. He added, "I'm committed to maintaining the quality of life I enjoyed growing up here in Irvine for all families."
