During the discussion this morning on WIDU’s Straight Talk radio program, it was reported that there was no public vote held prior to the change in City Council structure in 2000. We now know that there was a public vote.
When researching the election results on the Board of Elections (BOE) website there was no reference to the special election of 2 May 2000.
We regret the incorrect information and want to correct it.
Below is a link to election results on the BOE website. When you scroll down to the bottom, the 2 May 2000 Special Election is not listed.
