Musician.  Entertainment Promoter. Licensed Real Estate Broker.  Parks and Recreation Advisory Board Member. Zoning Board of Appeals Member.  Omaha/Douglas County Building Commission Member. Omaha City Council member.  Interim Mayor. Father. Husband. 

That’s the resume of Subby Anzaldo.

At the request of Mayor Jean Stothert, the Omaha City Council approved adding Anzaldo’s name to the Columbus Park Community Center, to recognize his service to the City of Omaha. The Center will be renamed “Subby Anzaldo Columbus Park Community Center”.

Anzaldo served on the Omaha City Council from 1988-1994 and 1997-2000, representing the South Omaha District 3.  In 2000, he became an advisor to Mayor Hal Daub and later served as interim Mayor from 1994-1995.

“Subby has served our city for three decades, and I am proud to honor his service with a commemorative renaming of the community center in the City Council district he represented so well,” said Mayor Stothert.  “He has been a lifelong advocate for South Omaha.”

“Next to my family, my proudest days have been serving my fellow citizens of this great city,” said Anzaldo. “My thanks and gratitude extend to Mayor Stothert, District 3 City Councilman Chris Jerram, members of the City Council past and present, Parks & Recreation Director Brook Bench, former Mayor Hal Daub and everyone whom I’ve worked with during my time as an elected and appointed official in Omaha city government."

Councilmembers Chris Jerram and Brinker Harding thanked Anzaldo for being a role model and mentor to others.  “I learned a lot from Subby. This is amazing recognition for a man who loves his community so much,” said Councilman Harding.

The Anzaldo family attended the City Council meeting Tuesday to thank Mayor Stothert and the Council for the recognition.  “The Subby Anzaldo Columbus Community Center is in the heart of our South Omaha neighborhood. This honor and dedication is one of pride and joy for our family on behalf of the legacy of our husband & father,” said the family.
