For several months the Fem Dems have been discussing the proposed Checks and Balances Act of 2014, colloquially known as the Strong Mayor Proposal. We heard from the opposition at June's general meeting and at yesterday's Fem Dems meeting we heard from the proponents of the proposal. After a lively debate and a vote of our members the Fem Dems have decided that we do not support the proposal as it was presented to us. We thank everyone who participated in this discussion and look forward to working with you in the future to make our community stronger.
Please direct any questions on our position to our President Alex Raegan at President@femdems.org.
