LEGISLATORS FROM OKC DISTRICTS ENDORSE TERM LIMITS PROPOSAL

Numerous legislators whose districts include the City of Oklahoma City have endorsed a citizen initiative to limit the terms of municipal elected officials.Oklahoma City resident Bob Dani chairs the group supporting the initiative, OKC Term Limits Now! Dani praised the legislators’ support.

“Oklahomans favor citizen legislators, not career politicians. By endorsing this proposal, these legislators are demonstrating real political courage, siding with the interests of ordinary citizens and not the professional political class,” Dani said.

Legislators endorsing the proposal include:

Mike Turner

Jon Echols

Dan Fisher

Sally Kern

Paul Wesselhoft

Mike Christian

Mike Reynolds

Lewis Moore

Rob Standridge

Ralph Shortey

All OKC area legislators were asked to endorse the proposal.

Dani noted that nine of the country’s ten largest cities already have term limits. “At the end of the day,” Dani said, “our citizens will benefit from more choices, new faces, new ideas, new perspectives, and new solutions to old problems.”

Under the proposal, the OKC Mayor and city council members would be limited to two, four-year terms. After sitting out a term, they would be eligible to run again. About 6,000 valid signatures of Oklahoma City voters must be gathered to
qualify the initiative for the ballot.
