Mayor Celebrates Birthday with City Council
Cake, sparklers for Mayor Jerry Fiala
For the first time in this reporter's career members of Kent City Council sang happy birthday and served cake to celebrate the birthday of a sitting mayor.
Kent Mayor Jerry Fiala blew out the candles on a surprise chocolate birthday cake Wednesday prior to the start of council's meeting.
Fiala said he'd been bombarded with well-wishes throughout the day Wednesday.
"This is the longest birthday ever," he said.
