The Columbus City Charter is essentially the Columbus Constitution. It defines the structure and role of the city and its leaders. I sat down with the chairman of the most recent comprehensive Charter Review Commission, Mike Curtin, to talk about the origins of our charter, why we have the structure that we do, and his predictions on the future of the city.
