THOMASVILLE, North Carolina: The Thomasville City Council voted 5 to 2 to place a measure that proposes to extend elected officials' terms on the November 3, 2009 ballot. Specifically the measure, if approved by voters, would change the term limits of the mayor and seven council members. The city's term limits were most recently changed in 2003 when voters approved a measure to eliminate the city's ward system and reduce terms from 4 to 2 years. The referendum proposes to undo that change. Referendum supporters argue that the current term is too short and has the possibility of breaking the effectiveness of the council.[1]
