The funding for the straw poll and the originating sponsor remain unclear. However by a 3 to 1 margin, registered and likely voters expressed a clear mandate for change.
One voter seems to have expressed a sentiment held by many in saying that, a City Manager is like a dictatorship, no matter how benevolent it is vastly inferior to a direct democracy.
