    Not necessarily. The city council where I live appoints a professional "city manager" to be the city's chief executive/administrator. The mayor is an "at-large" member of the council. His mayoral duties are strictly ceremonial (rather than executive) in nature. ("council-manager" form of government)

    OK, live and learn. I suppose I should not have assumed all states were the same.
