eJobs survey finds mayor should be good administrator and empathic

Newsroom 16/06/2008 | 15:45

Surprisingly enough, more than 68 percent think the main advantage in becoming a mayor is “the satisfaction they can do something for the community” and only 14 percent think the advantage is money, relations and fame. Moreover, the public's perception of this public office is not a negative one, as more than 48 percent of respondents see the mayor as a leader of the local community and only 9 percent suspect the mayor of being “coordinator” of the corrupt elements in society.
Lastly, the electorate wishes to have a mayor who is “human,” which for about 27 percent means the mayor should show empathy with members of the community. Only approximately 20 percent think the mayor does not need to have a higher education but rather to be a person “of good faith and with common sense.” Sixty percent of respondents said the mayor should have undertaken Public Administration studies.
