Mayor Determined To Change Image Of Common Council

One of Mayor Mel Norton's goals is to change how Saint Johnners view Common Council  because he thinks it is huring the city.

For as far back as anyone can remember, Common Council has been referred to by some in the city as "Comedy Council". 

The Mayor wants it to be seen as the "Classy Council" by being respectful to eachother, respectful to city staff, doesn't shout down someone they disagree with or belittle anyone.

Norton says he was impressed by how well the Councillors worked with eachother during the meetings on what the city's priorities should be.
