Text of measure

Text of the question:

The Charter now provides that Commissioners are elected in March of odd years. Should the Charter be amended to change Commissioner election dates from March to November in even numbered years, resulting in a term reduction of 4 ½ months for all Commissioners to effectuate changes in election dates and maintain staggered terms?[1][2]
