Shortly after Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg established the 2010 Charter RevisionCommission, the Commission conducted an analysis of the testimony presented by the public,government officials and community organizations at its initial round of five public hearings, oneheld in each borough. On May 10, based on this analysis, the commissioners resolved to furtherexplore five broad areas: term limits, voter participation, public integrity, government structure,and land use. The Commission subsequently held five issue forums at which it heardpresentations by experts and additional testimony by the public.At the direction of the Chair, the staff then prepared a Preliminary Report containingrecommendations for the Commission’s consideration. The Commission solicited publiccomments on these recommendations at a final round of hearings, again held in each of theboroughs.On August 11, the Commission met and resolved to place 11 proposals on the Novemberballot.
Term Limits
Under existing charter provisions, as amended by a local law enacted by the Council in,2008, City Council members and other elected City officials may currently serve up to threeconsecutive four year terms. Previously, a law enacted by voter initiative in 1993 established alimit of two four year terms for elected officials. In order to allow the electorate to choosebetween a two-term and a three-term limit, the Commission determined to place a proposal onthe ballot to reduce the current limit of three consecutive terms for elected City officials to twoconsecutive full terms. Additionally, the proposal would prohibit the City Council from alteringthe term limit of incumbent elected officials; and provide that the proposed changes to two termswould apply to officials first elected to office after November 5, 2013.
