Waterbury paper opposes Winsted charter changes

The Waterbury Republican-American today endorsed John McCain for president, and came out against a charter change in Torrington that would extend the mayor's term from two to four years, saying that it was a "solution in search of a problem."
The newspaper backed Winchester's proposed switch from a town manager to a strong mayor form of government, but opposed three other proposed charter changes, including one that would limit votes on the town budget, calling the proposal "anti-democratic."
