Former Long Beach Mayor Beverly O’Neill was chosen as the recipient of the 2013 League of California Cities Past Presidents Council Lifetime Achievement Award.

The League of California Cities Past Presidents Council honored former Long Beach Mayor Beverly O’Neill as the recipient of the 2013 Past Presidents’ Lifetime Achievement Award on Sept. 18 during the League’s opening general session of the 2013 Annual Conference and Expo.
For the award, the League’s past presidents select an individual whose contributions have been extraordinary over a lifetime of public service, according to a press release from the League, for which O’Neill had served as president from 2001 to 2002.
First elected mayor in 1994, O’Neill entered city leadership after a 31-year career with Long Beach City College. She was named 2004’s Municipal Leader of the Year by American City and County Magazine.
League Immediate Past President Mike Kasperzak presented O’Neill with the award. “Our cities are more than just boundaries, facilities and services,” he said. “They are unique and vibrant because of the individuals who lead. Beverly O’Neill is an inspiration to all of us who dedicate our lives to making our communities better.”
Kasperzak also presented O’Neill with a California State Senate Resolution commending her public service on behalf of Sen. Alex Padilla. The senator is a former League president and was unable to attend. “I congratulate Beverly O’Neill,” Padilla said in a statement. “I’ve known and worked with her for many years. Beverly’s work to improve the lives of the residents of the city of Long Beach is a testament to her dedication and leadership. She is an inspiration and role model for all of us who are dedicated to public service. She is a well deserving recipient of this award.”
