Any news on this recently?

DUBLIN WILL have a directly elected mayor next year for the first time since the foundation of the State, Minister for the Environment John Gormley has announced.

The mayor, will be paid the same salary as a Government Minister, will have responsibility for transport, planning and waste management across the four Dublin local authorities.

“2010 will see the direct election by the people of the Dublin region of a highly visible and accountable mayor who will have the authority and powers to deliver real leadership for the city and region,” said Mr Gormley.

“The mayor’s leadership will derive from a suite of substantial powers across the functions of local government.

...

He added that the election would take place next year in line with the commitment in the Programme for Government to bring in the new system for Dublin by 2011.

Could be June for the election. What do people think? Does this need a politician or someone wholly removed from politics - an unemployed architect/ planner?!!

It simply means there will be a Mayor to blame where there is few cm of snow instead of a minister

Do have a look at this on how we survived the snow a couple of weeks ago :
