Do You Know Something...

...That We Do Not?

We're quite certain that you, lovely readers, have information that we do not. And so we'd like to ask for your help!

On behalf of your inquiring minds, PO Boss attempted to reach out via email to just about every single current Council Member. But so far all we've gotten back is a big fat goose egg ... nada, zip, zilch, zero by way of response.

The question we asked was simple:

Will you support or oppose Council efforts to alter term limits legislatively (as opposed to voter referendum, Charter Revision Commission, or otherwise)?

So what we've done is put together a handy reference guide which we'll continuously update (click on the image to enlarge).

As you can see it is partially filled according to research we conducted of positions our Council Members have taken on the record, either through the press or through candidate questionnaires. Admittedly, a few of the positions we marked represent our best guestimations.

So far, the NO crew (as in, we will not undo the will of the people) leads the YES crew 17-9. That leaves us with 25 blanks.

So we invite Council Members (or their staffs) - as well as Council Members-elect - to let us know where you stand, and certainly if we've somehow misstated your position.

But we'd also like to ask that if you - readers - have any relevant information you can share with us as to where a certain Member stands on this issue, that you please do so. We could seriously use your investigative instincts.

Email us your findings at
