    Default what does CONTADOR mean?

    The guy next door has this as his front plate on his car. But when I translate it I get "counter", which is meaningless to me. He his a great guy, invloved with the community and is also a builder. thanks Phil

    I could be wrong (?) but I believe that in addition to translating to "Accountant", that in you neighbor's case it translates more literally to "Treasurer" of whatever local politcal party he/she belongs to.

    i.e. when you see political billboards with a smiling face that says "Juan Perez para Contador" it's "Juan Perez for Treasurer" in English.
