Two public referendums in the 1990’s established term limits for the NY City Council and NY’s mayor.
In 2008, in a vote of 29-22, the City Council decided that the opinion of the voters was actually wrong and overturned those limits.
“The people voting on it were the 51 members of the City Council, 35 of whom were being forced out of office because of term limits.”
I’m happy to report that all three Republicans on the Council voted against this atrocity.
