NY City Councilman Wants to Extend Term Limits

Boy they sure do like their positions of little work and lots of power, don’t they?

A candidate for City Council speaker has drafted a bill to extend term limits for the Council to three terms.

Councilman Jumaane Williams plans to introduce the legislation by the end of the year to allow Council members to serve three four-year terms instead of the current two, if voters approve the idea in a referendum.

Williams is among eight candidates running for Council speaker — all of whom have said they’d support giving their fellow pols a third term.

Of course the city has voted FOR term limits 3 times, even though Bloomberg decided he deserved a third term and got the Council to give him one.

But hey.  Democracy.  The people.  All that.
