On December 2, 2022, City Manager Art Gallucci addressed a letter to Cerritos employees announcing his intent to retire on June 30, 2023. Here is the content of that letter, published in its entirety:

For the past 51 years, I have had the privilege of working for the City of Cerritos. I have been fortunate to have led the City as City Manager for 31 years (1991). During my tenure, it has been a pleasure to work with outstanding City Councilmembers and dedicated staff members who have worked together to achieve great things in the City for our residents and businesses.

I am announcing that I am retiring from the City of Cerritos on June 30, 2023. As I reflect upon my career, I cannot think of having a more exciting position than the one I have had here. I wish the City only the best and I am convinced that the City will continue to grow and prosper as it has in years past.

Thank you all for all you do for Cerritos. I greatly appreciate you!
