Letter: Council system works for Spa City

Our current Charter works. Over the last ten years we have witnessed serious disputes at the council table and frequent changes in the majority party, yet we are still the envy of the state. We are an award-winning, financially solid destination city. People come from the world over to spend their time and money, to buy vacation homes and investment properties. We are widely considered to be a jewel in one of the loveliest parts of the country, and it’s an upward trend!

I suspect many of the cities recently changing governing formats were experiencing crises. We are far from that here. Why spend the time, effort, and money required to change from a government with a successful record to one that is less representative of our community and is unlikely to produce measurable gains?

On Nov. 6, please vote “No” on the Charter Change question.
