What is the Take Charge Term Limit Amendment?

The Amendment reads:

“No person may hold the office of Mayor for more than two consecutive elected 4-year terms (with all prior consecutive terms of the current officeholder counted in determining the term limit for that officeholder).”

Since the incumbent Mayor will have served two consecutive four-year terms, he would be ineligible from seeking reelection in 2019.
