Keehn, however, said the mandate has come from her constituents.
Lynn Goodness, a founding member of the group Citizens for Good Government, said he's collected hundreds of signatures from residents who want reform, and he has submitted them to the Mayor's office.
It was in response to this position, and not of any desire to usurp power, Keehn said, that caused her to resurrect the charter review commission.
"If I run for re-election in 2007, I run as the mayor of the committee form of government, or the mayor of some other form of government," she said. "This doesn't provide Val Keehn with any more power."
The charter review commission's information is available at City Hall, Saratoga Springs Public Library, and on the city's Web site at www.saratoga-springs.org. The commission meets at the library at 6:30 p.m. each Tuesday and Wednesday in August.""
