The Committee to Restore Term Limits is collecting 10,000 voter signatures to place a citizen-led Amendment on the ballot next November.


This Amendment will restore the two-term limit for all County Council members - both District and At-Large members.

This is the 2016 amendment, funded by developers, that extended term limits to 16 years!

This is the proposed 2020 amendment to restore 8 year term limits!

Section 307A. - Term Limitation.
No person shall be eligible to serve more than two consecutive terms on the County Council. No person shall be eligible to serve more than two consecutive terms as County Executive; provided that a Council member who has served two terms as a district member shall be eligible to run for an at-large seat on the Council and is eligible to serve for no more than two consecutive terms as an at-large member. This Section shall apply to all persons who are currently serving on the County Council or as County Executive on the effective date of this Section and to all persons elected thereafter.
(Petition ratified Nov. 3, 1992; Amended, CB-40-2016, ratified Nov. 8, 2016)
