Hank Trimble
City CouncilTranslate Smaller Text PrintShare

Hank Trimble is currently the Mayor of Hawaiian Gardens. He was born on May 10th 1956 and has lived in Hawaiian Gardens his entire life.  He’s an HG native! He worked for the city of Hawaiian Gardens in Transportation for 15 years and 2 years in Recreation prior to that. During his employ for the city he received a plethora of outstanding employee, recognition and participation awards.
Mayor Trimble was elected to City Council in 2015.  He was then voted in by the City Council to become Mayor in January of this year.  Mayor Trimble had his work cut out for him and was up for the challenge.  His motto for this year is “Hawaiian Gardens Moving Forward Together”.  In just a few months, he is doing just that … moving the city forward in a positive direction.  The city has a new City Manager – Ernie Hernandez, a new city attorney – Alvarez-Glasman & Colvin, a new Human Resources Manager-Tonya Houston and a new Executive Assistant – Shavon Moore.
Mayor Trimble recently spoke on the Senate Floor in Sacramento, California and was instrumental in passing the “Fix Our Roads” bill.  He also made sure that the voice of Hawaiian Gardens was heard and respected in Sacramento regarding the SB 1 bill. It passed and the city will be receiving over $400K of revenue that will address Hawaiian Garden’s local transportation infrastructure needs. The funds will be allocated in November of this year. The city has also acquired a Fully Equipped Hospital and Emergency Room that will be up and operating by the end of this year. 
In addition to all of the above, Mayor Trimble also sits on several Committees: California Cities for Self Reliance Joint Power Authority, SELACO WIB Policy Board, Sanitation District 19 of Los Angeles County & Gateway Cities Council of Governments.
Mayor Trimble is a busy and effective leader but still finds time to spend with the love of his life, his wife Kathy, 3 beautiful daughters, 2 awesome sons, who have collectively given them a total of 10 grandchildren.
