  1. My understanding that the first 2 candidates who get the highest vote will be replaced for both vacancy seat if both Kimberly Ho and Charlie Chi Nguyen was out.
    In the case, only one vacancy then the highest vote will take that position.
    If Tri Tạ is out and Tai Do take Mayor seat. The Council board will declare open seat and they may assign any suggested candidate or receiving the application from a public candidate without a public vote.
    Please let me know if I am wrong. Thanks
