Charter review votes for strong mayor

Last night, the Pensacola Charter Review Commission voted overwhelmingly to include a provision for a strong mayor in their proposed charter. Council member Jewel Cannada-Wynn was there in the audience.

In the open forum segment, Cannada-Wynn let the commission know that she wasn’t happy that we were proposing changes in the actual form of government. She told them that it was her understanding that they were only going to recommend minor changes.

Bold move by the CRC. Expect problems from the Pensacola City Council when they get the proposed charter from the CRC….but maybe not since the proposal won’t be presented until new council takes office.
