Ansonia residents should be urged to vote “yes” for all four Charter Revision questions on Election Day (numbered 2 through 5 on your ballot).
The suggested revisions, proposed by a committee of Democrats, Republicans and Unaffiliated residents, are designed to reduce the excessive size of City government while streamlining operations in City Hall and balancing the power of our elected representatives.

With the election fast approaching, I feel it is necessary to provide the Ansonia taxpayers with another perspective to the Charter Revision questions that will be on the ballot.
There are basically 3 areas of change: (1) Section 3 – Wards and Section 5 – Election of Aldermen are tied together, (2) Section 8 – Powers of the Mayor, and (3) Sections 38 thru 43 – Board of Apportionment and Taxation & the Budget Process.
I will explain what I consider to be problems with these changes, however, be aware that the biggest problem is not what is contained in these changes, but what is no longer there.
