Poll: NYers Want Term Limits Restored
NEW YORK (CBS 2 / WCBS 880) — According to a new poll, most New Yorkers want to restore the two-term limit for city officials.
Mayor Bloomberg overturned results of two voter referendums when he asked the City Council to re-write the term limits law in 2008.
That paved the way for his re-election.
The survey, however, found 73-percent of New Yorkers questioned said they want the measure brought back, and they’ll get their chance to do it in the Fall.
A commission whose members were appointed by the mayor voted to put the issue of term limits on the November second ballot.
