City of Pueblo Retain Council-Manager Government, Question 2A, 2009
The questions asked voters if they would prefer to keep the current form of manager-council government and not elect to have a mayoral position created to govern the city. Instead, this would create a head of the council, call him the mayor, but in reality would have just the power of the lead councilman and not a true mayoral position. This position would be elected by the voters.
The measure was defeated.
The ballot language read as follows:
Shall the council-manager form of government be retained and shall the charter of the City of Pueblo be amended to change the office of the mayor- member of the city council without additional power of authority, elected by majority vote of the registered electors for four-year terms, with the first mayor being elected at the general municipal elections to be held in 2011?
