2008_08_bloomberg08.jpgDeputy Mayor Kevin Sheekey has come out and said that he is opposed to a third term for Michael Bloomberg as mayor of New York. Sheekey is Bloomberg's top aide and no stranger to the mayor's political ambitions--he was the force behind laying the groundwork for Bloomberg's extended flirtation with a presidential bid earlier this year. Speculation was that Sheekey was also behind the talk that Bloomberg has been considering an attempt to repeal term limits in order to stay in office another four years. However, Sheekey went on record to the NY Sun today that he thinks that "change is good" in regards to the term limit law that will force the mayor to step down in 2009. Mayor Bloomberg as well has publicly denied the persistent rumors that he is seeking a way to keep himself in office.
