Briggs: We need new voting system

UNION — Union City Councilor Sue Briggs wants her community to capitalize on its growing number of dedicated volunteers. 

In an effort to accomplish that, Briggs is recommending the City of Union change its method for electing councilors. She is proposing the council adopt a resolution that would put a measure on the November election ballot amending the city’s charter. The amendment would put an at-large election system in place for city councilors.

Briggs believes this would strengthen the city council by making it easier for some of the best people in the community to serve on it. Many of these individuals are among Union’s growing number of early retirees. Briggs believes that an increasing number may be stepping forward in the future to become involved in community service.

“I think they will want to volunteer,” Briggs said.

The at-large system Briggs is proposing allows voters to cast ballots for all candidates running for open seats. If five candidates are running for three open seats, the top three vote getters would be elected.
