Who’s Mr. Anti-Term Limits Extension?

Tony Avella got some major coverage today for sponsoring a bill to block the City Council from extending term limits legislatively.

He’s not the only one. David Weprin has also asked that bill drafters in the Council write up a bill opposing the possible extension, his office said.

Also, Weprin is organizing a press conference for this Sunday at noon on the City Hall steps about his own bill. Expected to attend the event are groups like Citizens Union and New Yorkers for Term Limits–Ron Lauder’s group.

UPDATE: According to this document, Weprin’s request to draft a bill on this issue was made on September 5.
