Jerold F. Milner, who was elected to the Glendale City Council in 1983, has been chosen mayor. The position is mainly ceremonial and is rotated every year among the council members.
Milner was named by his council colleagues Monday at a reorganization meeting at which the oath of office was taken by the winners of last week's election, incumbents Ginger Bremberg and John Day and council newcomer Carl Raggio, the former school board president.
Councilman Larry Zarian, elected with Milner in 1983, was selected Tuesday as chairman of the Glendale Redevelopment Agency, which is made up of the five council members. Zarian is expected to be named mayor next year because both Bremberg and Day have held the post and it normally would not go to the newest councilman until everyone else has had a chance.
Farewell to Parcher
Milner, 54, is a district manager of operator services for Pacific Bell. Zarian, 47, has retired from his furniture and appliance business and owns several commercial and apartment buildings.
