On Nov. 19, the Los Gatos Town Council will make appointments to the position of mayor and vice mayor. These appointments are very important to the future of our town.

I strongly urge the Council to appoint Barbara Spector, currently vice mayor, to the position of mayor and Councilman Steve Leonardis to the position of vice mayor.

Spector has proven herself to be a strong, well-prepared leader and is the traditional appointment to the position of mayor. Leonardis has consistently proven himself to be an independent thinker who studies the issues and is in line to be the traditional appointment to vice mayor.

These are two excellent Council members who have served Los Gatos well and will continue to serve honorably in these key positions.

I agree that both Spector and Leonardis have proven themselves to be more than qualified and committed to the town of Los Gatos and it's residents. Even more important, both of these council members have shown themselves to be accessible and responsive the community and it's needs. I look forward to their continued service.

Council politics and even log rolling have been the order of the day for the past ten years. Hopefully now that the voting block , ( the 3 pro growth at any cost members on council ), has ended they will bow out gracefully. They need to transfer the gavel in the normal fashion and accept and work possessively with the rest of the council for 2013.
