NYC Voters Choose 2 Terms For Officials

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City voters have passed a ballot measure seeking to limit New York City mayors and other officeholders to two consecutive terms.

That means elected officials will not be allowed to serve three consecutive terms.

The limit had long been two terms but was extended in 2008 when Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided he wanted to run again.

He hastily persuaded the City Council to change the law for him. He promised he would later appoint a commission to put the issue on the ballot, but New Yorkers returned to a two-term limit on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s vote marks the third time New York City voters have chosen a two-term limit for their officeholders. They did so by referndum twice in the 1990s.

    And how is a vote or a law going to stop a Hitler wanna-be like Bloomberg from breaking it again? Much like Hitler, Bloomberg will just declare another “emergency” and extend his term if he feels like it.

    He’s just letting it go now because he wants to become President for Life.
