Lauder to Council:
Go Ahead, Make My Day!
In today's New York Times, Joyce Purnick reveals that wealthy Republican Ronald S. Lauder, who first brought term limits to NYC, will almost definitely put forward the time and resources to undo whatever it is the Council may do.
"I'm going to fight it every way," Mr. Lauder, the cosmetics heir, said in a phone interview. "I will put everything behind it. I didn't fight the battle twice to give up."
And Lauder seems to take personally the irony of what's coming down the pipe.
"...I am just disappointed that people who got in through term limits, who thanked me, saying they never would have gotten in otherwise, want to change it so they can stay in."
