Councilman Koppell Promises Term Limits Bill

Friday, September 05, 2008

Bronx City Councilman Oliver Koppell says if Council Speaker Christine Quinn doesn't move on term limits, he'll to introduce a bill to change them.

Koppell says the current two term limit "robs the public of a choice," and he wants the city's elected officials to be able to serve three full terms.

Speaker Quinn has said she opposes term limits, but she has not ruled out supporting a campaign to extend them. And Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said he would consider changing the law, if a bill was put before him.

If the law isn't changed, Bloomberg, Quinn and 34 other council members will be out of a job by the end of next year.
