TheQuestion 2A, Retain Council-Manager Government was on the November 3 ballot in Pueblo County.

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.[1]
