A Delray Beach City Mayor Term Limit Extension Amendment measure was approved on the March 12, 2013 election ballot in Palm Beach County, which is in Florida.

This measure amended the Delray Beach City Charter to make it so that if a commissioner is elected mayor his time spent as commissioner does not count against his six consecutive year term limit.[1]

Text of measure

Text of the question:

CURRENTLY, THE COMMISSIONERS AND MAYOR CAN ONLY HOLD OFFICE FOR A MAXIMUM CONTINUOUS PERIOD OF SIX YEARS. THE CHARTER AMENDMENT PROPOSES THAT IF A COMMISSIONER IS ELECTED MAYOR, THEN THE TIME SPENT AS A COMMISSIONER SHALL NOT COUNT TOWARD THE MAXIMUM TIME LIMIT AND THE PERSON COULD SERVE AS MAYOR FOR A MAXIMUM PERIOD OF SIX YEARS. THIS EXTENSION WOULD NOT APPLY IF THE MAYOR IS ELECTED OR APPOINTED TO THE OFFICE OF COMMISSIONER.

SHOULD THE ABOVE-DESCRIBED CHARTER AMENDMENT BE ADOPTED?[1][2]
