Clearly the most experienced council member Atherton has ever had, Kathy McKeithen, should be asked (begged) to take this seat for the remainder of failed council member Jerry Carlson's term.

There is simply no one more able or qualified to do this job, and handle the negotiations with the APOA, than Kathy McKeithen.

Instead of appointing Cary Wiest as vice mayor, that should have waited until Kathy came aboard (presumably, as mayor, given her seniority...Lewis should step aside) to weigh in on that issue.
