We salute the Riverbank City Council for moving to fill its latest vacancy so quickly. Last week, the four council members chose Leanne Jones-Cruz to replace Dotty Nygard, who resigned effective Sept. 1. We note that the first motion at last weeks meeting was unsuccessful. Instead of digging in their heels, council members agreed to Jones-Cruz as an alternative. Thats a positive sign for the council, and we hope it can function at full force for at least a year. As Riverbank residents and others know, the City of Action has been the city of council turnover for much of the past year.
