I have no view on this either way but the US started to become a populist democracy/passed Prohibition/passed an income tax/started taking away rights around the time that women received the right to vote.

This is news worthy? What writer and editor approved to actually allow this headline? Maybe the writer and editor need to do a little research on this "Charter" before they printed this. Give me a break, it is 2013. But I bet you sold several newspapers because of this, so goid job. Another piece of journalism that wants to just make money before having all the facts. You rank right up there now with The Globe and The National Enquirer....

Probably this change could be made with just a council vote. But, it makes good headlines for people to read. I often read these stories and wonder who wrote this story. Just today headlines in Weirton they might need to raise garbage rates but buried in the stories is raises being given but no mention of how much was given. Reporting the facts to the people would be a better story. I wonder why I read some of these stories.

I bet boy mayor would change the US Constitution every year but that is why an amendment is not an easy change to bring about to the US Constitution. That is when politicians represented the people and not special interest.

Maybe their charter is a little outdated but I will give the Lady Mayor credit she knows that changing the charter cost a lot of money. Too bad Wheeling does not know the cost of changing a city charter. Wheeling does it as if it is as simple as a resolutions and for the betterment of a few.
