Rikke Van Johnson came to San Bernardino city council in November 2003 and served three terms. His last city council meeting was on Tuesday last week. He is a graduate of Eisenhower High School in Rialto, CA and has an Associate of Arts Degree from San Bernardino Valley College, where he graduated in 1981. He retired from the United States Postal Service after 27 years of service and even though he leaves the council he still will manage Greenwood Bail Bonds.

The council will miss his even temperament and institutional knowledge from the past twelve years of service. He has represented us well and done us proud with his insight on many issues. Rikke has served on every City Council committee and as mayor pro-tem several times. Rikke is a deacon at Ecclesia Christian Fellowship Church in San Bernardino, where I am sure Pastor Beckley will find much work for him to do. He is a member of the Westside Action Group (WAG), the NAACP, the California Bail Agents Association (CBAA), the Broome Family Foundation (BFF) and the Newman Leadership Academy (NLA) Board of Directors.

I know that his wife Sharon and the grandchildren will also fill his time with lots of “honey dos”.

It has been nice to have Rikke as my council member and neighbor. All I had to do was email him and he would stop by the house and chat about his or my concerns. “I wish you well neighbor and thank you for serving the people of the 6th Ward and the citizens of San Bernardino. I found some pictures of you to share with your friends.”
