SERGIO CONTRERAS RESPONDS TO TERM LIMITS EXTENSION PLAN FROM OC BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
WESTMINSTER, CA -- Today, Westminster Councilmember Sergio Contreras released a statement in response to a ballot initiative recently proposed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors that would extend the Supervisors' terms from two to three consecutive terms.
Councilmember Contreras’ full statement can be found below:
“After failing to keep our families, essential workers, and economy safe during this health crisis, the Board of Supervisors are now trying to rush forward a measure that will give themselves longer terms in office. This sickening power-grab is just the latest example of how out of touch the OC Supervisors are and illustrates why the existing term limits are necessary. The Supervisors should be focused on responding to this unprecedented health and economic crisis, not how to increase their tenure in office.”
