OKC Term Limits Petition Filed

OKC Term Limits Now, a citizen action group, filed an initiative petition with the Oklahoma City Clerk’s office on Wednesday, December 4th, 2013. The group seeks to limit the terms of both Mayor and City Council members to two, 4 year terms. Supporters of the ballot initiative immediately began collecting signatures.

Bob Dani, President of OKC Term Limits Now, stated “These limits will put a stop to career politicians. All citizens will benefit from more choices, new faces, new ideas, new perspectives, and new solutions to old problems.” Dani knows of what he speaks – for a number of years he has moderated the High Noon Club, which regularly hosts political guests. Meetings are held at the H&H Gun Club, each Friday – at noon, of course.

Lance Cargill, who has been consulted for both legal and political matters for the group, assisted in assuring compliance with the law. US Term Limits was also consulted for their expertise in these efforts. After a lengthy review of both the procedure and the language of the petition, it was cleared for the step taken on Wednesday. According to Cargill, the “clock” started ticking with the filing of the petition with the City Clerk. It allows for a three month period of signature gathering, with approximately 6000 signatures needed to change the city charter. If sufficient signatures are gathered, OKC citizens will have an opportunity to vote on the measure. Dani has stated he hopes the measure will be on the March, 2014 citywide ballot.
