Jefferson City voters consider term limit reform on Tuesday’s ballot

Voters in Jefferson City will consider Proposition B in Tuesday’s general municipal elections.

The question:

“Shall the term limits for Councilmembers and Mayor stated in the Charter of the City of Jefferson be amended to remove the lifetime limit of eight years of service, and instead prevent any person who has served four consecutive terms from serving again until a break of service of at least one two-year council member term or one four-year mayoral term respectively, has elapsed, as provided in Ordinance No. 15872 passed and approved by the city council on January 14th 2019?”

If approved, lifetime term limits would be eliminated and be replaced with a mandated break for the length of a single term after any four consecutive terms.
