Mayor Hired by Rialto as Redevelopment Director

August 08, 1997

Mayor Robert T. Bartlett has been hired by the city of Rialto as its economic and redevelopment director.

Bartlett, known as "Mr. Monrovia" around his hometown, starts his new $90,000-a-year job Monday after working for seven years with Viking Freight. He will oversee a $1-million budget for redevelopment and housing in the Inland Empire city.

"There are a number of similarities between Monrovia and Rialto," said City Administrator Joe Guzzetta, after Bartlett's confirmation by the Rialto City Council.

It was Bartlett's experience as a six-term mayor in Monrovia that won him the job, Rialto officials said. As mayor he has helped secure businesses such as Office Depot, Computer USA, developed low-to-moderate income housing projects and revitalized its Old Town.
