Goodbreads eligibility as a holdover council member However the judge delayed making a decision until Monday morning Both attorneys are being allowed time to submit briefs to the judge explaining their positions Judge James Myers who heard the case determined the main issue at question is whether or not a identifiable position exists in which Goodbread can act as holdover Bremer and Benitezs attorney Ken Brazle argued because Goodbread is an atlarge candidate there is not an iden tifiable position for a holdover candi date Witnesses in the hearing included city attorney Barry Moore and council members Butch Benitez and Dan Bre mer Benitez told the court the reason he has questioned Goodbreads eligibility is because Goodbread is not only the candidate whose overall eligibility is being questioned but also the possible holdover candidate He said he would not have a problem if these were dif ferent people There is no other council member involved If the judge say he can sit in as a holdover so be said Benitez Benitez said he prefers Goodbread not be allowed to sit in as a holdover until the larger lawsuit questioning Goodbreads eligibility to sit on the councifat all is settled Bremer testified he was only inter ested in finding out if Goodbread was qualified and had nothing against the man himself Bremer said the city could suffer harm if Goodbread were allowed to sit on the council now and was later found to be ineligible One citizen has already challenged the he said The potential harm is Moore testified the council had can vassed and approved both the
