    Mayor O'Neill's 2005 State of the City Address

    (Jan. 11, 2005) -- Addressing what the City of Long Beach web site said was a "sold-out crowd of over 1,500" at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center, LB Mayor Beverly O'Neill delivered her 11th 2005 State of the City message today (Jan 11). posts the text as prepared for delivery on a link below.

    The City Charter requires that by the 15th of January, the Mayor "shall communicate by message to the City Council a statement of the conditions and affairs of the City, and make recommendations on such matters as the Mayor may deem expedient and proper."

    Since 1995, Mayor O'Neill has not verbally delivered her State of the City messages at City Council meetings. The message is agendized, offered in writing and in past years has simply been received and filed. Councilmembers and the public are entitled to comment on the item.

    Mayor O'Neill's State of the City Address has become an annual fundraiser for the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. On its calendar of events, the LB Area Chamber's web site said in connection with the noontime event:
