McMahon Voting No on Bloomberg Plan

[img_assist|nid=133|title=Bloomberg and McMahon|desc=mikemcmahonforcongress.com|link=none|align=left|width=267|height=179]City Councilman Michael McMahon, the Democratic congressional candidate for the 13th district, who was endorsed not long ago by Michael Bloomberg, just issued a statement saying he'll vote against extending term limits.

McMahon said, "After attending hearings, speaking with constituents, and considering the legislation, I have come to the decision that I cannot support the current effort to extend term limits. While I've consistently voiced my opposition to term limits, and believe that Mayor Bloomberg would be a valuable asset to the city during this fiscal crisis, the people have voted twice to impose term limits, and I do not believe the City Council should reverse the will of the people in this manner."

The statement comes one day after another Staten Island City Councilman, Republican Jimmy Oddo, said he'd vote against the bill.
