About Mayor Offices

What are the qualifications for becoming a Mayor?

Aside from residency and age requirements, most local charters do not require any specific education or experience for the position of Mayor. Most Mayors have some prior experience as an elected or other government official, or have been involved in some form of public service. Mayors typically benefit from political and consensus building skills. In a Mayor-Council form of government, management and policy development experience are particularly advantageous.

Does the Mayor determine what ordinances and other local laws are adopted?

The Mayor may initiate or propose ordinances and other local laws, but the adoption of these measures is a legislative responsibility. The city or town council, or other legislative body, has the authority to adopt local legislation. Depending on the form of government, the Mayor may or may not have a vote in the legislative body.

What is the term of office for a Mayor?

The Mayor's term of office is determined by local charter. In most municipalities, the Mayor serves a two-year or four-year term.
