Measure A would weaken the power of the Sacramento City Council by transferring powers to the mayor. This “strong mayor” measure places control of city priorities, projects, services, and hiring and firing of the city manager in one person’s hands. That person is the mayor. The mayor does not have to attend city council meetings or other public meetings, but she/he will be able to veto city council decisions and be able to line item veto any budget item.
Let’s have a strong city. Vote No on Sacramento Measure A.
