Adrian Garcia, Your time is up!

Councilman Garcia recently was bestowed that much sought after designation of Mayor Pro Tem. Prior to that, CM Garcia announced that he was running for Sheriff Tommy Thomas's job. There is one small problem here. The state constitution has a stipulation in it that says that if the remaining term of your office is greater than 1 year, then if you announce or file to run for another elected office, you automatically resign from your current one. Mr. Garcia's CM position runs until 2009. He announced on December 31st, 2007, Which means that if the term runs past December 31, 2008, he must give up his position on City Council.

Mr Garcia is no longer a Council member by my math.

I agree!

Is there a DA who will enforce that?

You do realize your are trying to discuss math to a politician. Not exactly a strong suite of many of them.

Term of office must be greater than 2 years....CM is only a 2 year, so he gets a pass.
