Al Adam deserves a council seat
In light of the unexpected departure of Thousand Oaks City Councilmember Dennis Gillette, it now falls to the remaining council members to decide on how to fill the vacancy.
I hope that the council will remember that they have only the power that is entrusted to them by the citizens of Thousand Oaks, the same citizens that cast over 15,000 votes for Al Adam in the most recent election.
Unless they can quickly identify another candidate that has that measure of support, this seems to be a pretty simple decision.
I encourage our council to do the right thing: appoint Al Adam to fill the remaining term.
