Who wants to have a Dublin mayor?


Sir, – The Minister for Local Government Phil Hogan is to ask Dubliners to vote next year on whether they want a directly elected lord mayor or a continuation of the current cosy cartel system (Home News, June 17th). Perhaps Mr Hogan should first ask the people if they want, or need, a lord mayor, elected or otherwise? – Yours, etc,
