Position for Pueblo mayor could be up for grabs soon

Position for Pueblo mayor could be up...

PUEBLO - The decision to adopt a strong mayor in Pueblo is up for discussion again.

City Council will let voters decide in November.

Voters didn't like the idea back in 2009 when a local attorney lead the campaign, but people we spoke with today say they're ready for a change.

“I'm not much into politics, but I think it would be better that way if the mayor made the decisions,” said Rose Mascarnas.

“I'm all for it. Pueblo as a whole, they're falling behind the rest of the state. We're the largest city without a mayor,” said Ken Williams. 

The elected mayor would be paid $150,000 a year and would have veto power over decisions by City Council.
If voters approve the change, the first mayor would be elected in November 2018.
