Consensus: Position on the City Council, Adopted April 1980

The League of Women Voters supports the following positions relating to the City Council:

  1. The League of Women Voters supports a continuation of a parttime council which would be com-posed of members who devote a part of their lives to public service and who in return are paid a salary which reflects this part-time commitment.

  2. LWV does not support the concept of limited terms for City Council.

  3. LWV does not have a consensus position on staggered terms for council, unless terms are limited, in which case, staggered terms would provide continuity to the city council.

  4. LWV supports election of the city council on a nonpartisan basis.

  5. The League of Women Voters supports a council composed of some members elected by district and others elected at large. The number of district seats should exceed the number of at-large seats.
