Just reading about it feels uncomfortable.

Think what it would be like to feel the vibes firsthand at this week’s Hercules City Council meeting, where a new mayor and vice mayor were appointed.

It wasn’t a smooth process, reporter Tom Lochner writes. There were a few long, awkward silences and many nervous looks. Finally Joanne Ward was appointed to be mayor on a 2-0 vote (two members abstained) and Myrna de Vera as vice mayor on a 3-1 vote.
