[ koun-suh l man-uh-jer ]
/ ˈkaʊn səl ˈmæn ə dʒər /
a system of municipal government in which the administrative powers of the city are entrusted to a manager selected by the city council.
Is It “Opinion Of,” “Opinion On,” Or “Opinion About”?All three are fair ways to use the word opinion, but there are some major differences in how each phrase is typically used.
