CITY MANAGER’S MESSAGE
Thanksgiving is a special day to count our blessings and all the things that we are grateful for. I am especially thankful for our wonderful community volunteers, residents, City staff, service organizations, and businesses that make Claremont an outstanding community! On behalf of the City of Claremont, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
-Tony Ramos, City Manager
