You got the citizens vote on term limits twice and it was to have term limits. Let's cut the crap this mayor got away with removing what the voters wanted with the help of those council members who also wanted no limits--proudly I say not my council member--and that's a crock. How do you claim this a representative democratic government when the elected deny the choice or the electors!! We want term limits and we want it that unless put to a vote to eliminate it no ONE individual or council can reverse that choice of the electors.

With Year 2008 payroll of $23 million for the five Offices of the Borough President, what real value areNYC citizens receiving for this expense? Why can't this Office be eliminated and replaced by a Borough Manager with a staff of engineers. We need a more professional staff of people and less political personnel.
