SHAH Alam mayor Cheremi Tarman announced his retirement Tuesday (May 28) afternoon after chairing the city council's full board meeting at Wisma MBSA.

He had served as mayor for four months, from Jan 18.

“It is a great feeling to have been able to helm and work with a wonderful city council, with a talented staff.

"I loved working with people from various neighbourhoods who were all eager to share ideas and contribute proposals to improve the city,” he said.

He added that there were differing views at times but on the whole, the council members worked well together because they shared a common goal of doing good for the city.

Cheremi added that the job had been challenging at times but also exciting as he got to understand Shah Alam and its people through events such as community gatherings, official functions and gotong royong.

Cheremi, the 11th mayor, took the reins from Dr Nor Fuad Abdul Hamid.

He obtained his civil engineering degree from Louisiana State University in the United States and served in the public sector for 36 years.

He was previously acting Shah Alam mayor, Petaling Jaya City Council Engineering Department director, and Selayang Municipal Council deputy president.
