Mayors And City Councils
The Deseret News has an editorial up today condemning legislation that would force cities to hire managers to take over many duties now performed by the Mayor. The editorial's most profound point, however, was only loosely tied to the original topic: "Utah's many cities have a lot of problems. But the political tug-of-war many mayors and city councils experience is a part of good, representative government." NO Mayor should EVER be allowed to stack the deck in the City Council. No matter how much you may like the Mayor, it's poor and dangerous politics.
