Text of the Measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall ARTICLE XIII: Nominations and Elections of the Charter of the City of North College Hill be amended by adding

Section 13.09 Setting TERM LIMITS for City Elective Offices, as follows? Upon passage of this Charter Amendment, holders of elective office in the City of North College Hill (whether past, current or future) may not seek re-election to the same office if they will have already served a cumulative 12 years or more in that same office. Such individuals would thus be “Term-limited” for that office. Elective Offices in North College Hill include Mayor, President of City Council, City Council Member and any other elective office that would be created in the future. Term-limited individuals for an elective office may not be appointed to fill out the unexpired term of a person leaving that same office. Any past, present or future office holders having time remaining in an unexpired term after already serving a cumulative 12 or more years may complete their terms but not run for the same office again. Term-limited individuals may seek election to any of the other types of elective City Government offices as long as they are not Term-limited in those offices as well. Should time in office become an issue in determining one’s “Term-limited” status, that status may be confirmed by using archived City, County or any other public records. Shall the proposed charter amendment be adopted?[1][2]
