The article reports that the city manager of San Diego in California, P. Lamont Ewell, announced that he will leave the post when the fiscal year ends in June 2005, citing the voters' approval of a strong-mayor amendment to the city charter that will reduce his office's power. Ewell said in the resignation letter that the strong-mayor amendment prompted him to announce his departure after less than eight months in the job. Ewell plans to stay on through June 2005 to produce a 2006 budget and a five-year financial plan.
