New Yorkers Want a Say in Term Limit Vote

Monday, October 13, 2008

New Yorkers watching Mayor Bloomberg march by in the Columbus Day Parade greeted him with applause. But almost all say they oppose the Bloomberg's attempt to change the law that limits mayors to two terms. John Pizkatelli of Fresh Meadows, Queens, says the whole city should be able to vote by referendum on revising the term-limit law.

PIZKATELLI: It shouldn't be a City Council thing. It should be up to the voters. It should be up to the voters.

REPORTER: Pizcatelli says two terms are enough for Bloomberg. Others say they might support him, but only if the public gets a say first. A handful told WNYC they believe Bloomberg should have the chance to run again, and whatever he and the City Council come up with is fine.
