Statement from Mayor Karen Goh Regarding the Passing of Councilmember Jeff Tkac

Yesterday, the City of Bakersfield lots of a community leader and friend. We are
heartbroken by the passing of Councilmember Jeff Tkac. Jeff leaves behind a wife, and three beautiful children.

Jeff accomplished many things for our city as a business owner, Planning Commissioner, and volunteer police officer. All who knew Jeff knew of his passion for our city and the well-being of its people. He will truly be missed. Our prayers are with his wife Heather and sons Justin, Hudson, and Parker. May God comfort them through this incredibly difficult time.
