Danbury Evening News - December 27, 1888 - January 3, 1889 - Letters to the Editor regarding the proposed City Charter

Dublin Core


Letters to the Editor regarding the proposed City Charter. L.D. Brewster explains some the reasons for the change in systems. Charles Doran (a Danbury Grocer of Irish decent) explains his support of a two tiered council where one body is elected by the entire city. H. M. Chittenden outlines his objections to the charter and Charles Doran replies to Mr. Brewster's comments on his previous Letter to the Editor regarding his objections to the City Charter. Also, a communication to the Warden and Burgesses from W. F. Taylor & Son, Borough Attorneys, stating two areas of concern in the proposed Charter also appears in the column.
