If he was a real public servant, he'd have not run for council and only been on 1 ballot this election season. Showed true colors. Needs the job but wanted to save political face. Now he's resigning to let the elected officials and kingmakers handpick a replacement instead of the voters as they should have in May. Look for more coward chess moves in the future from this dude.

This is nothing new. Bill Cecil ran for Mayor while serving as a council member. He resigned when he won and Margo Nielson was appointed to fill his unexpired council term. George Bush ran for President while serving as Governor. John Kerry ran for President while serving as Senator as did John McCain. Russo did nothing unusual or underhanded.

This is the way things in Rockwall are run now and always has been. The men's club, as they like to call themselves,wants to control the mouth of every politician in Rockwall. They don't like people that won't do as they say and vote where they want the votes to go. Really just a gossip club, this group of guys and a few women that feel they are a real asset to thge club,get together to gossip amongst themselves and determine who will do what to whom. Bunch of losers, has-beens and ner' do wells. Pay no attention to them. They don't like anyone with a free thought.

Yeah, Russo, Perry, and W, three real puritans of politics (and brainiacs to boot).

None ran for 2 offices at the same time to leverage political position. There's nothing wrong with your examples, but Russo ran for 2 offices on 2 ballots at the same time. He's a joke and now a judge.

Shame for Scott. He is so full of hate because no one likes him or his politics. Can't the other lawyers give him at least some work? He just trolls the internet looking for something to reply to that he thinks is relevant. Maybe something will come along for him to do, someday.
