Mayor Art Ward said this morning he goofed on the makeup of the newly appointed Charter Revision Commission, accidentally installing one Democrat too many.
Though the law allows for only four of the seven members to hail from one party, the City Council approved a panel that has five Democrats.
Ward said he's asked for the resignation of the last person picked for the commission -- Bruce Suchinski -- and intends to replace him with an independent woman chosen by city Councilor Kate Matthews.
A special council session will likely be called next week to ratify the change.
