4 Wards with 2 councillor per ward

Post #1 by bob.burey » Fri Sep 30, 2016 10:18 am

The debate to reorganize City council in order to have effective representation can be achieved if we the voting public adopt a 4 ward system with 2 councillors per ward.



The main advantage is you would have a more collaborative approach to issues. The second advantage over time you will have a natural turn over of elected officials. It is normal to rate one more effective over the other and exercise your 2nd vote for a new face.



A ward system for our city is still paramount, in order to have all regions represented at the table.



Hopefully our current elected representatives are willing to give this suggestion a review.

I have seen that work well in some other cities and it would be a definite improvement over the status quo!

I don't believe two per ward is the solution. Someone who doesn't finish in first place should not win... you lost!



My preference is restructure the wards completely or go to a ranked ballot in which case I could agree with the results.

1 per ward. none of this bs that if one ward is bigger than the other it gets more councilors.
