An Armchair Mayor editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
COUN. DENIS WALSH mused at yesterday’s Kamloops City council meeting about putting a referendum on the ballot with the Sept. 30 by-election.
How about the fact there are more City councillors than needed? Maybe I sound like a broken record on the subject but consider this:
The City of Kamloops, with a population of 90,000, pays for a mayor and eight councillors. Vancouver, with 630,00 people, gets along quite nicely with only two more councillors than Kamloops.
