Councilman Nelson Will Probably Vote to Change Term-Limits Law

The Daily News conducted a survey of City Council members to find out whether or not they would vote to extend term limits, but one member they couldn’t reach was City Councilman Mike Nelson of Brooklyn. I just found out Nelson will most likely vote yes.

I ran into Nelson as he was heading into a hearing in the City Council chamber on residency requirements for municipal jobs.

“I’m leaning towards it, not 100 percent,” he said. “More like 90 percent.”

Nelson is in his second term and has not previously been discussed as a candidate for higher office. 

So according to the Daily News poll, plus Nelson, that would be 11 yes, 14 no and the rest undecided or unreachable.
