Ballot Questions - City of Yonkers

Voters in the City of Yonkers will be asked to vote on two ballot questions, both dealing with changes to the City Charter.  Ballot questions are often missed entirely by voters, and they often aren't worded in ways that make the issues immediately clear to the voter.  Jane Barker prepared an excellent summary of the two ballot questions, one proposing changes to the process requiring City Council approval of mayoral appointments and the other proposing changes to the method of filling the Mayor's position in the event the Mayor leaves office mid-term for any reason.

For the summary of the first ballot question, click on  Ballot Question #1                PASSED

For the summary of the second ballot question, click on  Ballot Question #2               PASSED
