Katz coy on term limits vote

...Councilwoman Melinda Katz from Forest Hills says she is conflicted.

"I've always been a long opponent of term limits," she said.

But she says she's listening to her constituents before she takes a definite stand.

"It's on both sides," Katz said. "Some folks really just don't like the way it happened – the process, the vote. But some of the same folks would like to have the choice on who to vote for next year."

Meanwhile, in the district right next door, City Councilman Thomas White's constituents are also conflicted.

White did not speak to NY1 Sunday, but he's described himself as undecided. White is still in his first term, so he is eligible to run again regardless of the council's decision.


Many Council Members Still Undecided On Term Limits Bill

Katz, however, is coming to the end of her second term, and the decision to change term limits could have a ripple effect on her political future.

"I am a candidate for New York City comptroller, and at the moment, Comptroller Bill Thompson says he's running for mayor," she said. "I spent over two years getting prepared to run for that office and so I'd be excited to be able to do that. And, after that, we'll have to see."

Katz should plan to step down - we had enough of 2 terms of nothing from her. Term limits - limits the exposure to do-nothing Pols.

This legendary real estate industry's slut will part her thighs for the best deal that's offered to her!

You can be sure of that!

"Who or what will pay me the most to have me", says our pasty faced pol.

Until the offers are in she's momentarily "conflicted" about her
position on the casting couch and remains undecided!

She's got my vote for comptroller, you knock her for receving money from companies but ever wonder why she is loved in Forest Hills by a wide majority?

She is? Everyone I have spoken with from Forest Hills either has complaints or no idea who she is. She has resorted to bringing the baby to work and falls asleep while she meets with her constituents because he keeps her up all night.

Someone should tell Katz that ALL the folks will have the choice on who (actually, Katz: "for whom") to vote for next year.

She is so corruptly ignorant that she has no idea how this works. Just another New York moron.

Katz is proof incarnate of the need for term limits the way it has been already decided. (Yuk! Imagining Katz incarnate is revolting)

She's waiting for Mayor Mike to give her the big one. Money, that is.
