Re "Council recruits a surprise nominee" (Our Region, Jan. 24): Congratulations to the Elk Grove City Council for choosing Robert L. Trigg to fill the vacant city council seat.
Trigg will bring a fresh attitude and approach to a most contentious council. He has no hidden agenda and as a 30-plus year resident of the Elk Grove and retired Elk Grove Unified superintendent, he has a better understanding and knowledge of our city than even the each of the council members have. I praise Mayor Gary Davis for realizing that he had the ability to change a no-win situation into the best possible choice for the city. Sadly, council member Jim Cooper still doesn't get it.
