Charter Commission adds back At-Large seats

The Pensacola Charter Review Commission bowed to the unspoken demands of certain city council members and voted to amend their charter proposal to include two At-large seats on the council. Two months ago, Commission member DeeDee Ritchie made a motion to have the at-large seats, but her motion failed to get a second.

The good news is that the proposed charter could be before the city voters by November, if the city council allows it. The At-large seats appeared to be the biggest stumbling block.
