Yaroslavsky knocks term-limit measure; supervisors postpone vote
Los Angeles County supervisors postponed a vote Tuesday on a ballot measure that would let voters decide whether to extend their term limits.
Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky criticized the proposed measure and pointed out that voters approved term limits for supervisors in 2002.
“The ink isn’t even dry” on that ballot measure, Yaroslavsky said. “This makes a mockery of us.”
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich had proposed putting an item on the November ballot that would ask voters to increase term limits from three to five. The measure, if approved, could benefit him -- Antonovich has already served eight terms -- and three other long-time supervisors who are barred from running again by current law.
