In next week's election, voters will have the chance to vote to restore two consecutive four-year terms for the city's Mayor. And guess who will be voting "yes" on that measure? That's right, third-term Mayor Bloomberg. But it's okay, because his third term was an emergency.
A Bloomberg spokesman says because of tough fiscal times, Bloomberg just had to stay on to guide our fair city through the storm. And now that the storm is over, he's fine with letting things go back to the way they were before New York had a Lord Protector. However, the law will be in the hands of voters next Tuesday. So, do you want our mayor to have the same term limits as the president, or are you fine with the next mayor staying for three terms (or even longer if there's another crisis that only he can avert)?
