I have said to all those who would listen among my contacts over the years that the re-design of the City Council a few years ago did not result in a good configuration. What we needed - and need now - is an Executive Committee (formerly known as a Board of Control) elected City-wide.

I measure the decline of the City from the time that the B of C was eliminated some fifty years ago. As it is, we still have Ward by Ward politics and no overall leadership. The importance of a City-wide vote was not recognized by those in charge of directing the recent changes. We are now suffering from that oversight, and have done so for years.

Basically, the system is broken. We need to revamp City Council and have a five person Executive Committee elected City-wide!
