What Supporters, Opponents of Prop K (Nov. 2000 Attempt to Change LB Term Limits Law) Said

(April 17, 2002) -- In view of its timely newsworthiness, posts on the link below the ballot arguments, pro and con, and City Attorney's analysis of Prop K, a November, 2000 ballot measure.

Placed on the ballot in a divided vote by the City Council, Prop K proposed that LB voters amend LB's term limits law by changing the lifetime ban to a ban on three consecutive terms and permitting the name of a termed-out candidate to be placed on the ballot if the candidate qualifies for the general election.

Among the arguments made by Prop K's supporters at the time: "Current law says if we wanted Beverly O'Neill to run again she could run as a write-in, but even if she got the most votes, her name would still not appear on the ballot for the run-off." (This argument in support was signed by then-1st district Councilmember, now Assemblymember Jenny Oropeza and 9th district Councilman Jerry Shultz).

Councilmembers Dennis Carroll and Jackie Kell signed the ballot argument against Prop K.

Voters rejected Prop K at the ballot box: 48.6% yes, 51.3% no.
