Directly Elected Mayor promo

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Councillors voted unanimously this evening in favour of letting the citizens of Dublin decide by referendum on a directly-elected mayor. Despite earlier events in Fingal County Council making the decision of DLRCoCo councillors irrelevant, 23 out of 28 councillors attended and voted in favour.

I am disappointed at the decision of Fingal councillors but pleased that Dún Laoghaire councillors showed their faith in citizens to make decisions for themselves.
