From the Daily News:
The Citizens Union played an active role in the failed effort to block the term limits extension, but has sufficiently recovered from that disappointment to endorse Mayor Bloomberg for re-election.
CU Executive Director Dick Dadey and Chairman Peter Sherwin announced the good government group's decision via press release this afternoon and said the decision wasn't easily reached, given Bloomberg's "decision to reverse his position on the issue of term limits and seek a change to the city charter that overturned the twice voter-enacted law."
The CU also endorsed Democratic Staten Island BP candidate John Luisi, continues to support Councilwoman Diana Reyna (who faces a continued challenge from her unsuccessful primary opponent, Maritza Davila, on the WFP line), Assemblyman Mark Weprin (for the Council seat of his brother, David), GOP Councilman Eric Ulrich and nine other Council incumbents:
Daniel Garodnick and Jessica Lappin in Manhattan, Kevin Kim, Peter Vallone Jr., and Elizabeth Crowley in Queens, Vincent Gentile in Brooklyn, and Debi Rose, James Oddo and Vincent Ignizio in Staten Island.
So what the hell is the purpose of this group if they are going to denounce the extension of term limits but then endorse the very people that decided to run for a third term? That's good government?
