Thompson: Term-Limits Legislation ‘Inappropriate’

Bill Thompson is out with a statement criticizing the City Council for moving ahead with Michael Bloomberg’s plan to change the term-limits law. This time he doesn’t name names.

Thompson said:

Today, the New York City Council introduced two measures, one that would allow the Council and the Mayor to single-handedly grant themselves the ability to run for a third term. The other measure would allow New York City voters to make the decision.

The choice is clear: People must come before politics. It is inappropriate for the Mayor and City Council to pass legislation that ignores the will of the voters. A government should serve its people and not itself. New Yorkers deserve nothing less.
