Re "Hansen takes a risk in opposing Johnson on 'strong mayor'" (Our Region, Aug. 19): I have one question for the proponents of Sacramento's strong mayor initiative: why?

Over the last five years, the mayor and supporters of this idea haven't made a clear and compelling case as to how this could improve the city's governance for its nearly half-million residents. Let's go beyond the horse race coverage of who wins or loses.

I hope The Bee and other media outlets engage Sacramentans on a serious discussion of the pros and cons of this very important issue so that voters could make an informed choice on this issue this fall.
