And our GRAND MARSHAL this year is Pasadena Police Chief John Perez, who is serving in honor of the originally scheduled Dick Hartt — WWII veteran, Art Center alumnus, retired photojournalist, and longtime Madison Heights resident — who is having health issues. Chief Perez has served in many capacities since joining the department in 1985, from patrol to community relations to special investigations. Although the chief holds a B.A. an M.A., and a Ph.D., he may need additional training for July 4. The “parade wave” only looks easy.
