Town hall to discuss charter proposals
To the Editor,
On June 11, 2019, the City of Weirton will conduct an election to elect a mayor and seven council persons. Also included in this election are 11 changes to the city charter.
The city charter is the bible that sets forth the governing of the City of Weirton. Most of these charter changes are clean-up language of which I agree. However, there are three charter changes on the ballot of which I strongly disagree for the sole reason that I do not believe they are in the best interest of the city of Weirton.
The issues of the charter changes I encourage the Weirton voters to vote NO are Issue Number 4: removal of appointed positions; Issue Number 7: appointments to state boards or election to state offices; Issue Number 11: Weirton City elections.
As I am sure, many of the readers would like to have more explanation regarding the charter changes that I oppose. Therefore, I have scheduled a town hall meeting to be held on Thursday, June 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the Weirton Millsop Community Center Weirton Room, where I will further explain my opposition in detail.
Please consider attending the June 6, 2019 town meeting.
