In less than a week, Cuyahoga County voters will decide whether to change the structure of their county's government. Issue 6 would replace the current three commissioner system right away and replace it with an elected executive and 11-member council. Supporters say the legislature and executive structure would create a more vigorous system of checks and balances than the county has now. That claim is ridiculed by opponents of Issue 6. ideastream®'s Eric Wellman spoke with Janice Patterson of the Cuyahoga Area League of Women Voters about the competing claims. The League is a non-partisan group that has come out in favor of issue 6 and changing to a county exectuive.
