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.
