Why all the talk about the next City Manager? Bring on a Strong Mayor form of Government. Worcester District 3 City Councilor George Russell supports putting it on the ballot.
He tells Talk of the Commonwealth and Radio Worcester that we should “see if the people of Worcester want it.” He’ll bring it before the council soon. “The only question is do we go for a full blown charter review or if we just try to tweak the existing form of government we have and just have the current mayor’s position be a council president and have the chief executive officer be an actual mayor.” Russell also voiced his opposition to the Community Preservation Act calling it a tax upon a tax.
