STRONG MAYOR PROPOSAL RISES AGAIN....

The League of Women Voters of Sacramento County submitted a letter by email to the Sacramento City Council expressing our opposition to the Strong-Mayor ballot proposal.  Similar  proposals have already been rejected several times by the voters.  While the League does support a salaried mayor postion and a vote for the Mayor on Council issues, we do not support the Mayor having more voting power than other Council member since he or she already has the "bully pulpit."  Our opposition to the Strong-Mayor form of city governance is based on a study the League completed in 2009. You can send an email to your councilmember expressing your position. AND,  join the League to stay on top of the current issues.
