The embarrassing display of councilmen positioning themselves to be next mayor highlights the need to change the way Glendale selects its top leadership (“Glendale delays naming new mayor,” April 4.)

For many years, those of us who have observed these proceedings unfold interpreted the trading of favors as preconditions to the selection of mayor. It seems to us that with Glendale's representation in the Metropolitan Transit Authority, the Metropolitan Water District and the Bob Hope Airport commission, the game of naming the next mayor hinges on who is promised each of these coveted seats, all of which give council members a voice on big, and sometimes huge, public contracts.
