The New York City Council will once again see a bill on term limits introduced, although this one is not likely to be as controversial as the last time.
On Wednesday Council Members Danny Dromm and Ben Kallos will introduce legislation to impose a six-term limit for members of Community Boards, capping tenure at 12 years. Currently, community board members can serve as many two-year terms as they wish, so long as they continue to be approved by their respective borough president.
"Communities change and I believe Community Boards should change also," Council Member Dromm said by phone Tuesday evening. "I applaud those people who spend 30 or 40 years on a Community Board, and I thank them for service. But I do think we need to move things around."
The bill would not affect members currently on the boards, only those elected to a first term on April 1, 2016 or after.
So the same evil people and dead weight currently appointed will continue to serve indefinitely. Fantastic job, gentlemen!
