Expect to see the Weho Term Limits folks all over town this weekend gathering signatures for a .
Volunteers will be out in force in at places like Plummer Park, Gelson’s, Pavilions, 24-Hour Fitness, Trader Joe’s, Basix and the Starbucks in Boystown.
They have until Sept. 25 to collect just over 2,300 signatures from West Hollywood registered voters. The group started collecting signatures last weekend, but intend to amp up their efforts this weekend.
The term limits they are calling to be put before the voters are three four-year terms for City Council members, served either consecutively or scattered, for a maximum of 12 years.
Since state law prohibits terms limits from being retroactive, all of the current City Council members would be allowed another 12 years.
Of the current City Council members, John Heilman has served for 28 years, Abbe Land has served for 21, Jeff Prang has served for 15 and John Duran has served for 11. The new kid on the Council, John D’Amico, has served for one year.
