Consideration of the Elective Offices

On November 19 the second in the series of meetings sponsored by the Charter Study Committee will present information on the important subject of elective offices. Again, a briefing session will precede the talk by the guest speaker. We are fortunate to have in this role Dr. Edmund F. Spellacy, Professor of Government at the University of Hawaii.

The theory of elective office as applied to City-County government will be presented. Included are such questions as what offices should be elective and why, terms of office, trends in other cities of similar size, recommendations by accepted authorities as to the size and means of selection of supervisors, and some criteria for judging strong versus weak mayor-council forms of government.

With the memories of the recent elections still fresh in our minds there should be much interest in these problems.
