Prola was appointed to the City Council in February 2007 after Tony Santos was elected as Mayor of San Leandro in November 2006. Prola was selected from a field of 12 applicants, half of whom were interviewed for the position. Prola's application can be seen here.

Election day is June 8, 2008, just seven and a half months away. Expect more of these filings in the upcoming months.

Prola hit the ground running as a city councilor, he didn't skip a beat and is one of the most progressive elected officials in the city.

He played a major role in making the 'living wage' ordinance a reality in San Leandro.
