Letter: Why fix the Saratoga Springs charter if it isn’t broken?

Can our present form of government be tweaked for more efficiency, perhaps? Mayor Johnson has said he will appoint a commission to look into streamlining our present charter. All citizens will be able to participate in this adjustment to our present form.

I am suggesting that before voting, citizens go onto the saratogacitizen.com website and read the proposal, make sure you check the monetary aspects of this change and also notice the lack of contact you will be having with the people running your city.

I may be naive, but I have been asking myself “ what’s in if for the people who are advocating this change?” I certainly don’t see anything in it for Saratoga Springs residents.
