Measure X – Create Terms Limits for City Councilmembers


Measure X will create term limits for city councilmembers by capping service at 12 years, or three terms. It also clarifies the roles of City Auditor and gives the Public Ethics Commission the power to set salary caps for both the City Attorney and City Auditor. Furthermore, it requires all ballot measures proposed by City Council to be heard at least twice publicly before City Council votes whether to place the measures on the ballot. This measure does uphold the current system and structure that favors the mayor by allowing the mayor more say and power in decisions by City Council.
