NY Post Edit Heads
In today's New York Post, the editorial board simply rips the Council a new one:
You could say term limits are why New York City has today's "clown council" in the first place.
All in all, scrap them.
But that doesn't mean - by any stretch of the imagination - that the council has the right to take it upon itself to override the will of the people.
If councilmembers want to get rid of term limits, or even loosen the chains a little, they can't (if they care to maintain one shred of integrity) do so without putting the question before the voters.
