Sec. 2.3. Mayor; Term of Office; Duties.
The mayor shall be elected by all the qualified voters of the Town for a term of two (2) years or until his or her successor is elected and qualified. The Mayor shall be the official head of the Town government and preside at meetings of the Council, shall have the right to vote on all matters before the Council, and shall exercise the powers and duties conferred by law or as directed by the Council.
I take note that this section of the town charter defining the mayor's duties and powers does not say that he is a full member of the council, only that he presides over the council and has the right (not duty) to vote on all matters before the council. It would also seem that the council can direct the mayor, not the other way around. Just a thought.
