Letter: Mayor would mean more accountability
I find it offensive when suggestions are made that a mayoral system would somehow be inferior to the situation we currently have (and have had for many decades).
There is nothing like a democratic system, where each vote counts, and each vote is to support or oppose a particular issue.
There is nothing worse than a vote by proxy — for someone else to cast that vote on your behalf — such as members of the select board.
A personal vote for a mayor would result in greater transparency, greater accountability.
Last but not least, what is going on about those absurdly high salaries?
