Letter to the editor — May 1, 2012

Dear editor,

The public has been asked to comment on a proposed charter ordinance changing our City Council elections to four-year staggered terms. I suggest a different model:  Reduce the council to four members plus a mayor, serving three-year staggered terms.  

With the election in April 2013, the council would be reduced to five members. The two council candidates with the most votes would each serve a three-year term. The two council candidates with the next highest votes would each serve a two-year term and the elected mayor would serve a 1-year term.
