James on the Caucus
October 6th, 2008
According to Councilmember Letitia James, the presumptive co-sponsor of legislation that would require a city charter commission look into the term limits issue, this afternoon’s Democratic caucus was split over a different proposal by the mayor to extend term limits from two to three terms.
James said seven members spoke out in favor of the legislation, while eight members spoke out against the bill.
The bill pushed by the mayor, she said, is still slated for introduction tomorrow. Her bill, however, will not be introduced until the next stated meeting later this month, because they missed the deadline. The deadline was 5 p.m. Friday. James said the request was handed in an hour later.By Courtney Gross on October 6, 2008, 6:06 pm
