    LOWENTHAL of california in the house of representatives Friday, January 8, 2016 Mr. LOWENTHAL. Mr. Speaker, I submit the following: Whereas, in 1911, the City of Stanton, previously known as the ``Benedict'' community, was incorporated and named after Philip A. Stanton an honorable legislator; and Whereas, Stanton remained an incorporated community until 1924. At an election held on July 22, 1924, the voters decided to disincorporate to allow the State to construct roads in the territory; and Whereas, on May 15, 1956 a successful election was held on incorporation. On June 4, 1956, the City of Stanton was officially incorporated again under the general law form of government as specified by the State of California; and Whereas, upon recommendation of the Stanton Women's Civic Club in October 1959, the Jacaranda was selected as the City Tree, and the Bird of Paradise was selected as the City Flower; and Whereas, at the City Council meeting of January 24, 1989 the City was presented with a flag that incorporated the official city logo and colors. The City Council unanimously adopted the City flag on February 14, 1989; and Whereas, on March 24, 1987 the City Council unanimously adopted ``Community Pride and Forward Vision'' as the official City motto; and Whereas, Stanton is home to more than 39,000 residents within its three square miles in the heart of northwestern Orange County. Recent years have seen the City of Stanton experience rapid growth in the commercial, industrial and residential sectors, creating a balanced community with a deep sense of pride in its accomplishments; and Now, therefore, be it resolved, that January 12, 2016, is the beginning of celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the City of Stanton and encourage all residents of the City of Stanton to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the City of Stanton by exploring and honoring its rich history and embracing the City's future.
