Garcia tapped as next Sunnyside mayor

To help ease with the transition after current Sunnyside Mayor Ed Prilucik leaves office next month, the council this past Monday evening was asked to throw out a name of whom they wanted to succeed Prilucik.

The council was nearly unanimous in thinking Councilman Paul Garcia, who was absent from Monday night's meeting, would be a good choice.

The lone dissent came from Mayor Pro-tem Jim Restucci. He agreed with council's choice that Garcia would make a good mayor but said Garcia frequently misses council meetings due to other duties.

He reminded council he has been mayor pro-tem for the last two years and felt that Mayor Prilucik had trained him well to step up as the next mayor.

Council will pick a new mayor at the first council meeting in January.
