Loomis Term Limits Initiative, Measure A (November 2010)
Measure A limited members of the Loomis City Council to serving two consecutive four-year terms in office.
Measure A was written so that the term limits it imposed were retroactive.
Tom Millward was a leader in the campaign to enact term limits on the Loomis City Council. He said, "When you have people who have been serving forever, they get their own personal agenda and interest groups … and they don't listen to anyone else."
A simple majority vote was required for approval.
- These final, certified results are from the Placer County elections office.
