Reader’s response to “Opinion – Sitting Council”
Liz Smith says : Edit
I absolutely concur ! At this stage of the game, our best recourse is to have intelligent, honest and sensible people step up to run in this election. The voting public needs to become informed so that this destructive cycle is broken.
The real “run the town” power has been in the hands of the Town Manager for 22 years. The Town Charter needs to be re-visited and revised so that there are actual requirements for the position. The position should require education in municipal management, yearly assessment and an actual contract. What a cosmic concept ! Serving at the pleasure of the Mayor and Council has been a concept that has doomed the citizens to be nothing more than hostages to incompetence.
