Dear editor,

Mayor or figurehead? That is the question. The proposal coming from our new city council is for a weakened mayor’s position. In effect the person getting the most votes, having run for the office at large, will have the least amount of power.

That leaves our city government in the hands of the eight council members. I think we need stronger and more directed leadership than that. Successful organizations have strong leadership. At the helm of a large ship, do you see eight people or one? I favor a strong mayor’s position.
