time to get back to business By GARY CARROLL Nmra Editor Judge Bob Dahoney ruled Thursday that any legal attempt to prohibit Councilman James Goodbread from serving as a holdover candidate would have to be filed with the court as a quo warranto action through a state Dahoney dismissed the case on that point of law which doesnt prevent Goodbread from serving as a holdover candidate but does not guarantee him holdover The possibility still exists that an injunction could be obtained through an office of a state No one has approached my office regarding this said Cotnal County District Attorney Bill If some one did come to my office seeking an I dont feel I could go along with sim ply because I feel that Judge Dahoney has and the electorate has spoken quite The county attorney has gotten involved in but Im staying out of it its my job to prosecute criminals and thats what I Reimer County Attorney Nathan Rheinlander said he would not personally argue a case on this but said if such a case brought to him is backed up with good case law then he feels the courts should have a chance to see it It would still be my position that it is not my job to deny people access to the Rheinlander Attorney for Dan Bremer and Ambrosio Butch Benitez said that he would not pressure his clients to pursue any further legal action but would represent them if they so Bremer said he could not say what his plans were until he reviewed his I was a little disappointed that we didnt come out on and I was really hoping the judge would put the issue to Bremer I dont really know where we go

as a holdover candidate Judge Bob Dahoney ruled in a Thursday hearing that the plaintiffs could not bring such action against and the temporary restraining order issued Monday was thereby Goodbread said he was very pleased with the ruling and that he was ready to get on with All I really want to do is serve in the capacity of councilmanatlarge and represent the people that elected Goodbread Thats all Ive ever asked for and thats all I expect During the Ken attorney for Benitez and told the court that the facts were indis putable and only one question need be answered by the They Benitez and Bremer simply must know if James Goodbread is qualified to serve as a councilmember in a holdover Brazle Brazle argued that the May 1 voter approval of a charter amendment lim iting the terms of councilmembers pre cluded any legal hold Goodbread had on his recent reelection to a fourth term on he said that Benitez and Bremer sought the injunction in the interest of their offi cial capacity as councilmembers in order to prohibit Goodbread from par taking in council action that could be nullified in the future due to his unqualified Brazle argued a Tennessee case that required a holdover candidate must represent an identifiable Since Goodbread was an atlarge council Brazle said there was no way to determine which atlarge seat Good bread thus it would be impossible to identify which atlarge candidate should serve as the Texas has no specific laws dealing with holdover Atanacio attorney for argued that Benitez and Bremer filed the action because it was the only way to readdress the issue of Goodbread serving on council prior to the 3 trial set to determine if Goodbread can take the oath of office for his fourth The holdover issue is now a way to circumvent the quo warranto Campos This is totally con trary to what Texas law is all and I nave yet to see this as a properly filed Judge Dahoney concurred and said that injunctive such as was being sought by Benitez and must
