Michael Rouleau is Rancho Bernardo’s new Honorary Mayor.

Rouleau, who owns and operates Michael Joseph Salon & Spa in Rancho Bernardo, takes over for Robin Kaufman.  He outpaced two other candidates – Larry Herring of Herring Chiropractic and Kamala Johnson of Visiting Angels of North County – to secure the position.

Sponsored by the Rancho Bernardo Business Association, the effort raised more than $7,500 to benefit the Miss Rancho Bernardo Scholarship and the Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation.

The announcement came during the annual Savour RB food tasting event Sept. 13 at the Courtyard by Marriott.
