Some think of the governance of our city as "by committee," but by committee is the way all governing boards in Sarasota operate … those of our county government, hospital board, School Board and other municipali- ties in Sarasota County, none with a strong all-powerful mayor. Representative govern- ment is the foundation of democracy! Proponents say, "It's time," but I say it is not time. It is never time for a charter created by a small group to further its unknown agenda. It is a hijacking of this wonderful city's gov- ernment. Do not sign the petition for this new charter! % LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Sarasota News Leader wel- comes letters to the editor from its readers.
