This just in: Proposal to change term limits passes committee…on to full body

Update: Thursday, Oct. 23rd at 4:02pm: Term limits defeated! by full council.

I am not sure if there is an official position anywhere from the Green Party on New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s scheme to overturn referendum and law and allow himself another term. But, Green sentiment seems to be against it. And, I think it is ridiculous to overturn a vote based on one person who thinks he is so important he is the only solution.

Good story with background, characters and update: http://www.cbs8.com/stories/story.144132.html

From our post out here in the suburbs, we are mostly just watching Mayor Bloomberg and the shenanigans. Here is the latest:

NYC Council committee passes term-limit bill
Associated Press – October 23, 2008 10:53 AM ET

NEW YORK (AP) – Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposal to change the term-limits law so he can run again has cleared a New York City Council committee and will now go before the full council for a vote.

[The measure will be sent] to the 51-member body for a vote later Thursday [today]. The measure gives officeholders the option of a third, consecutive, 4-year term…

A NYC voter writes to his Councilperson:
[If you want to lobby your councilpeople do it fast, via fax, phone, or e-mail. Maybe go to city council. Because they are expected to vote later today.-KW]

To: Domenic Recchia


I urge you to switch sides on the term limits legislation, and vote
against the Bloomberg plan.

It’s pretty shocking that first the City Council votes to increase
members’ salaries to — what? — $120,000+ ? Then it votes to
increase by four years the amount of time that each member will be
collecting that salary?

If this truly is a matter of principle and not opportunism, you could
amend the current bill to begin in the FOLLOWING election cycle, so
that the NEXT Mayor and City Council members would be able to serve
up to three terms. To apply it to your own situation at this late
date — instead of having submitted this legislation for public
approval again — belies any honest discussion of “principles” and
exposes this as simply corrupt opportunism.

Come on, Domenick, change your vote!

You are, by the way, my City Council rep., but on this one you’re not
representing me or your other constituents at all.
