23. Wow. No city council We live in a town of 700 people and periodically
they try to get rid of the town manager position.

All nice enough folks, but so far no dice on making changes to our election system.

In our favor, though, being a small town means pencil and paper at every voting booth.

I hope you can make progress with your new mayor. Even conservatives are willing to sign on to some election reforms if they are interested in cleaning up the government. It's the ones who are tied to big business that dig their heels in the dirt over it.
