Ontario's new mayor was sworn-in Monday night, along with the city's other newly-elected administrators and council-members. Randy Hutchinson spent some time Tuesday getting settled into his office. The changing of the guard took place as former mayor Larry Collins welcomed Hutchinson. Collins originally planned to veto a reduction of the income tax for Ontario residents who work outside the city, but changed his mind when the amount of the reduction was cut in half. Hutchinson supports the change. He's also excited about Avita Health System's plans to move into the former Lazarus store at the Richland Mall. And he looks forward to seeing the Adler Group attract businesses, in addition to Sunfest Herbs, to the former General Motor plant site. Hutchinson says his overall goal for the Ontario mayor's office is to attract business and tax base, to generate revenue so city hall can provide all of the services residents expect. He plans to seek re-election and hopes to serve several terms.
