The Town of Pomona Park has lost our beloved Mayor, John C. Bergquist, Jr. - He gave a valiant fight with cancer and passed last evening at 11:59p.m. at Community Hospice Bailey Family Center for Caring in St. Augustine, Florida. We have placed all our flags in Pomona Park at half-mast in honor of John. You might not be aware, but he has contributed so much to the Town of Pomona Park - from getting financial stability, to following through with roads and streets. The list is endless.
