On May 19, 2009, islanders will have the opportunity to decide on their form of government.
Voters will choose whether to adopt the council/manager form of government or stay with the current mayor/council form.
Ballots will be mailed to all island residences on April 29.
We want to hear your opinion on the change-of-government election.
Post your comments below and touch on a few of the outstanding questions surrounding this issue: Which form of government is better for Bainbridge Island? Is this special election a referendum on the current council or mayor? Will the council dynamic change under a council/manager system? What are some of the benefits and flaws of both systems?
If you need any clarifications we will attempt to answer all questions to the best of our resources.
