Strong Mayor Plan Snubbed

(Sacramento, CA)
Wednesday, February 8, 2012

It would've given the mayor power to appoint and remove the city manager…as well as other veto and budget powers.

Instead, the council voted 7-to-2 to let voters decide in November whether the city should form a charter commission that would review how the city is governed.

That's something Johnson isn't fond of…

"I think the charter commission idea needs to be dumped. I don't think that's in anybody's best interest. And I feel like it's a reaction to the 'checks and balances' initiative that I brought forward."

If voters approve a charter commission, 15 people who live in the city would then be elected to serve.
