So for instance, given the current crop of candidates for Council, the 
order would be:

Dave Cridland
Jack Moffitt
Remko Tronçon
Kevin Smith
Ralph Meijer
Peter Saint-Andre

Since members have only 5 votes and lots of people mindlessly vote yes 
on every item, they would run out of votes by the time they get to me. 
Result: I don't have to serve on the Council anymore. Yay! ;-)
