It’s not time to slip into the oven a half-baked idea

In an almost out-of-the-blue moment, Warner Robins City Councilman Mike Brashear, presented a plan last week that would have changed the city’s form of government. No longer would the mayor be the full-time, chief executive officer of the city -- rather the position would become part-time, relegated to kissing babies and cutting ribbons at shopping center openings. Brashear was able to sway colleagues Carolyn Robbins and Mike Daley to help roll out the plan, but Councilmen Mike Davis and Daron Lee weren’t buying it. A town hall meeting was held and a straw poll taken on the subject and 60 percent were not in favor of the change. Thus, Brashear decided to drop the idea.
