2008_09_bloomberg2.jpgMayor Bloomberg continued to pay lip service to the term limits debate yesterday, saying that he would "think long and hard" about a bill that would extend term limits from two to three. He also said that he would veto a bill to end term limits, a curious declaration since there has been very little serious speculation that such a bill to do away with them altogether is forthcoming. Today's NY Times says that attempts to reverse term limits are a nationwide trend, though most places "are trying to do so via the ballot box." They also note that some of these referendums only deal with future officeholders, not simply a means to keep the current ruling class in power longer.
