Sam Yoon is asking his supporters to barrage city councilors with phone calls to convince them to vote on a measure to limit Boston mayors to two terms in office. The proposal currently sits in Maureen Feeney's committee on government operations - to which a proposal to keep the city-council president from becoming mayor if the sitting mayor resigns has also been consigned.
In a statement, Yoon says:
"This is about good government reform we need in Boston. Frankly, we need campaign finance reform and a full charter review, but term limits is something we can do now.
Yoon made term limits a plank in his mayoral campaign this year. The current city council, on which Yoon sits, expires on Dec. 31. The rules committee holds one last meeting on Dec. 16.
