Leaders of Two National Groups -- U.S. Term Limits & Nat'l Tax Limitation Committee -- Blast O'Neill's Court Attempt To Get Name on Ballot

(April 26, 2002) -- The leaders of two national groups -- U.S. Term Limits and the National Tax Limitation Committee -- have issued a joint statement blasting incumbent Mayor Beverly O'Neill's unsuccessful court attempt (first reported among LB media by to get her name on the June runoff ballot.

Lew Uhler, President of the National Tax Limitation Committee, and Stacie Rumenap, Executive Director of U.S. Term Limits, issued the statement yesterday from which we quote below.

The statement was made available by the Baker for Mayor campaign.

Re: Beverly O'Neill's Suit Against the City of Long Beach

Beverly O'Neill again tried to make a mockery of the Long Beach electoral process and now she wasted tax payer dollars by suing the residents of Long Beach. Not only is her action an affront to the term limits ordinance, which has been repeatedly approved an upheld at the state and municipal levels, but an insult to Long Beach residents who soundly rejected Measure K. They said No in 2000 to allowing a write-in candidate's name to appear on the ballot. Term limits were created to stop career politicians from staying in office indefinitely.

Re: Approval of Judge's Ruling (the judge has rejected O'Neill's cross-complaint)

We applaud Judge Janavs' decision to uphold the Long Beach City Charter and the will of Long Beach residents. Her ruling is fair and a testament to the term-limits law which was created to prevent career politicians from staying in office. This decision should send a clear message to Mayor O'Neill to stop wasting taxpayers dollars and Long Beach residents' time. The voters have spoken and she should respect them. Her attempt to redefine the City Charter, jeopardize the June 4th General Election and strong arm voters violated the spirit and letter of our laws.
