In a straw vote Wednesday, Newton’s Charter Commission voted in support of term limits for:
- Mayor: 12 years (current charter: no term limits)
- City Councilor: 16 years (current charter: no limits)
- School Committee: 8 years (same as current charter)
Notes from the Newton League of Women Voters is here.
“The Argument” in yesterday’s Globe West featured City Councilor Ted Hess-Mahan and Republican City Committee chair Tom Mountain debating the whether or not the Newton Charter Commission should impose term limits on mayor and city council.
