Forum held to discuss political term limits

The New York City Charter Revision Commission held its first of five issue forums today regarding whether or not to reinstate a two- term limit

BROOKLYN - The New York City Charter Revision Commission held its first of five issue forums today regarding whether or not to reinstate a two- term limit for city politicians.

In 2008, the New York City Council passed a bill allowing Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other elected officials to run for a third term. In that instance, the public did not get to vote, prompting city-wide controversy.

During the forum, a panel of professors and attorneys gave their opinions on the issue.

After the hearings, the commission will decide whether to put the term-limit issue back on the 2010 ballot and give the public a chance to vote.
