250_PETERVALLONE_termlimits.jpgThe spineless city councilman who relies heavily on fighting graffiti to get his name in the press, Peter Vallone Jr., will support Bloomberg’s plan to bend the will of the people by voting in favor of legislation altering term limit laws. Like Speaker Quinn and the mayor himself, Vallone opposes a referendum by voters which is how this matter has historically been resolved. Instead, he offered up some bullshit excuse about the city’s so called impending doom, “While I believe, and most people agree, that a referendum would be the best way to alter term limits, at this point I think it’s more important to make a huge improvement in our government than to insist on a special election that could cause government paralysis during these trying times.” So basically, it would be way too inconvenient to let democracy get involved. |Gotham Gazette|
