Council Members Again Prepare To Vote Against Term Limits

…Only this time, it is in the privacy of the voting booth, not on the floor of the City Council.

Politicker interns Rhea Mabubani and Rachel Morgan reached out to all of the sitting City Council members who voted to void the city’s term limit law.
