Monday morning, Mayor Carlo DeMaria presented Al Borgonzi with a citation after he officially retired from serving the City of Everett.
Borgonzi personally contacted Mayor DeMaria in the midst of the health pandemic, and volunteered to retire in order to save someone else’s job during the city’s layoffs.
“I don’t know too many people who would do what Al did,” Mayor Carlo DeMaria said. “His selfless act blew me away. I want to wish him a retirement filled with happiness. Our doors will always be open to Al.”
Borgonzi worked during Mayor Ragucci’s administration and all 13 years of Mayor Demaria’s tenure. His most noticeable work is his behind the scenes effort with renovating the parks in the City of Everett.
