But the PDs and FG have called for directly elected mayors for these cities.
I want to stree the point that we are just as entitled to reform as the cities.
They have directly elected mayors in the UK US and many other countries and the number of "celebrity" mayors is very low. So i do not think we need fear that.
I think towns like Westport and Castlebar would be much better off with directly elected mayors because you would replace the officials with someone
A that you could fire
The above are completely lacking under the current system.
