There is NO vacancy until the incumbent RESIGNS from the council. He can't vote once he gives up the job. Why are the courts wasting time on this corrupt political BS; when their dockets are crowded with real cases that need a judge and a jury?

What does game the system mean???

In English please....

I am going to take a wild guess and say that he is trying to go around it? Correct?

Let's think logically about this... now I know this may be hard because it seems as if you use a lot of slang like "tool" and "gaming" and I am pretty sure Websters Dictionary doesn't have either of YOUR definitions in there for those words.

But I will try to dumb it down.... There is NO vacancy until a person resigns. One can't vote once he gives up the job. Make sense?

So yes, if we want to use the words "game the system" I can think of one person whom defines this: Alejo.

Vacant means 'unoccupied.' Why does the city attorney not understand that word. You can play with words and turn them around to mean whatever you want but if you play them too long, the original word tends to lose its meaning. In other words, you have two supposed lawyers on the council and neither of them have any common sense to understand how to use a dictionary. No wonder our city is in such nasty trouble. Look who is running it. A mayor who couldn't keep a house but bought a brand new car and ran a campaign. Tells you something about his priorities.

Alejo was supposed to go back to Mexico to work on reforming his own country after the United States taxpayers paid to educate him. Why is he still here?

Ask Alejo... they tend to spend a lot of time together.
