Letter: A mayor shouldn't be elected with only 30% of the vote

It's time for a change in the election process, says reader
Vote 2

Mayoralty elections were held recently here in Tampa, Florida. One of the candidates received 48 per cent of the vote, while the next one received less than 20 per cent.

There will be a runoff election, as no one got 50-plus-one per cent.

This is what should happen in Sudbury. Maybe then, we would not be stuck with a mayor who received less than 30 per cent of the vote, or, in other words, not the choice of over 70 per cent of Sudburians. 

Time for a change, Sudbury.
