Richland senators seek city government question on ballot

May 13, 2010 2:18:00 PM - thestate.com
The Richland County senatorial delegation introduced a resolution today asking the city of Columbia to put a question on the November ballot asking residents if they want to change city government to a mayor-council form of government.

The resolution carries no weight in law, but has the full support of the four senators who represent the state's largest city.

This resolution follows a similar proposal drafted earlier this year when the city was in the throes of electing a new mayor.

That resolution similarly asked that residents be given a voice in changing the government from a council-manager form of government to a strong mayor form, but that resolution was not supported at the time by Sen. John Scott, D-Richland.

Scott said he objected because he felt such a question would confuse the pending mayoral election.
