A municipal charter is the basic document that defines the organization, powers, functions and essential procedures of government. It is comparable to the Constitution of the United States or a state's constitution. The charter is, therefore, the most important legal document of any municipality.
Montville's Mayor Ron McDaniel stated that our town's charter is not pragmatic (meaning outdated and impractical) when recently defending his cronies noncompliance to it. If an American president dismissed our Constitution in the same manner that McDaniel dismisses our charter, he'd be impeached.
McDaniel has had numerous opportunities to show real leadership in town by reining in his out-of-control council Democrats, but has instead chose to accommodate and kowtow to the likes of Councilor Joe Jaskiewicz and company, by allowing their improper practices to go unchecked.
