Local Representation is Critical

I do not agree with the proposal to eliminate ward elected councilors.  Reducing the size of the City Council, if desired, can be accomplished without that change.
Ward elected seats are the most fundamental and direct representation.  Running for a ward election ensures that local voices are heard that might not be able to afford the expense and effort to run Citywide.

Please ensure you understand what you are voting for or against  when you vote on the Charter Proposal.   If you vote "yes" the council size will be reduced to 12 in 2020 and you will lose the right to have your ward councilor elected exclusively by your own ward.  I urge you to vote NO  and preserve the right for only your ward to elect your Ward Councilor.
