Resident Urges ‘No’ Vote On Ansonia Charter Changes

by Rick Sturges | GUEST COLUMN | Oct 28, 2014 3:23 pm | Comments (5)

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.
