We propose that Boulder residents vote to elect our Mayor. The Mayor would be elected to a 4-year term. This election would occur in non-presidential even years (eg; 2022, 2026, etc…). To avoid the pitfalls of our current voting method, we would use Ranked Choice Voting (Instant Runoff Voting) to ensure a majority of voters pick the winner, disincentivizes negative campaigning and provides more choice to voters.
“A mayor that is appointed is beholden to City Council, a mayor elected is beholden to the people”
Shall the voters of the City of Boulder adopt changes to the charter that will require the election of the mayor by the voters using ranked choice voting every four years starting in 2022, create a council of eight plus the mayor for a total of nine people, and establish term limits for the mayor?
