Newly crowned 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam ​ ​— ​ ​with his family on hand to celebrate his first day on the board ​ ​— ​ ​was on the dais for only minutes before being caught off guard: He had to give a speech Tuesday morning after his swearing in. “It’s really daunting being up here,” the mustached and calm-spoken Adam said. “It’s a different view, a different perspective.” Adam, a long shot to unseat longtime incumbent Joni Gray, won’t have long to admire the view, as he and the rest of the board will be soon be wrestling with big-time issues, the largest perhaps being how to construct a new County Jail in North County.

What is really cool, or something, about new Supervisor Adam is how he simultaneously wants to expand local oil and gas development while also eliminating the county permitting and review that regulates the same industry.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

Where's the funny hat with a tea bag hanging off the side?

It would be nice if Mr. Adam could experience an epiphany with that "different perspective" of the dais, but it's most likely temporary. But, gotta hope for the best. (And, like the Mel Brooks song, "Prepare for the worst"?)

Well.. he certainly looks like an eager beaver.
