    put two and two together, guys. The post right before this one says that Armando is hoping to get appointed to SAUSD board (with Sal’s help). Then you post about a little party that Armando is throwing to raise money (for Sal).

    Am I wrong for seeing a little back scratching going on?

    Strange. I’m reading and rereading the post and nowhere does it say that Armando is “hoping to get appointed.” My eyes are tired and it is late, so please point it out when you find it.
    And there’s not much that Sal can do to help – he has to resign before there’s even an opening, so he can’t even vote on his successor.
    Finally, it looks like Armando and Belinda are raising money for 3 of the councilmembers-elect. Sal is just one of the three.

    Funny how David Benavides missed the Planning Commission meeting on Monday and the excuse was that he was on vacation for the week with his family.

    Funny how he can make it back to take cash.
