There’s no shortage of fun at Harrah’s Resort Southern California. That was more apparent than ever on Monday, May 13, as Jill Barrett, senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s Resort SoCal, and Bo Mazzetti, Chairman of the Rincon Tribe, inaugurated Funner’s newest mayor, Martin Short. Barrett said the Emmy and Tony winner’s renowned humor and dedication to entertainment made him an ideal leader for guiding Funner into a new era. “Mayor Marty is already actively planning innovative projects that will enhance the fun in Funner like his ‘Short On Time’ spa offerings and ‘Buckets of Fun’ hotel package,” Barrett announced.

The fun didn’t stop there. Short’s friend and former mayor, Jane Lynch, was also on hand to celebrate the occasion, taking the stage for his induction ceremony. The “Only Murders in the Building” co-stars shared gleeful banter in front of an excited crowd, giving those in attendance a taste of what Harrah’s visitors can expect under Mayor Marty’s reign.  

Short succeeds Lynch, who was inaugurated in 2022. Before the “Glee” star took office, the position was held by Rob Riggle and before him, David Hasselhoff. “It’s truly a privilege to stand here with you all in beloved Funner, California,” said Mayor Marty. “I’m committed to being more than just a handsome man in a purple suit and stylish bow tie. Let’s work together to elevate Funner and craft extraordinary experiences for every visitor.”
