Mayors, weak and strong...

On Tuesday, voters in New London will go to the polls to decide if the city charter should be amended to create a strong mayoral-form of government in the city. Currently the mayor is a ceremonial position, selected by members of the City Council from within their representatives on the council and serving one of the two years in the term.

There is a slightly different mayoral battle being waged in Norwich to the north. The city manager and the mayor have taken their ongong feud public - and it now appears that there is change coming before the end of the year. I've got more to say about the Norwich situation in this week's column in the Norwich Bulletin.

It will be interesting to see how voters in New London respond to their situation on Tuesday.
