GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A group aiming to impose term limits on Grand Rapids elected officials hopes to put the issue before voters this autumn.
The Grand Rapids Citizens for Municipal Term Limits proposed a ballot initiative for the Nov. 4 election that would implement term limits for Grand Rapids commissioners and the city’s mayor. Currently, there are no limits for local politicians.
The proposal would limit commissioners and the mayor to two four-year terms.
Tuesday, the group submitted a petition to city officials, seeking to place the question on the ballot. They say they collected over 9,600 signatures, which they say is well over the 6,700 signatures required by law.
Before the question can go on the ballot, the signatures need to be verified.
