Mayor Joe Serna (cq) holds his grandson Andre Miguel Mayorga (cq), 2 mos., in his office, Thursday, June 24, 1999. With his family at his side, Mayor Serna revealed that he has developed lung cancer and will not seek a third term in office. He held his condition in tight confidence with his wife, Isabel, since the diagnosis in late March, 1999 so as not to worry his daughter who was six months pregnant at the time. Many of his closest friends and civic allies gathered in his office to hear his statement to the media.
