Term Limits Imposed for Roswell Mayor

Recently re-elected Mayor Jere Wood has finally gotten his way. The Roswell City Council, at the insistence of Wood, has voted to impose term limits on the mayor’s position.

Under the measure, the next mayor, whether it’s Wood or someone else, will be limited to three terms.

The irony of this is this is that Mayor Wood began his fourth four-year term last month. But in his defense, Wood has tried previously to convince the city council to approve limits, but was unsuccessful.

Wood argued for the limits, saying they force mayors to have to become leaders, rather than becoming complacent.

The Roswell City Council passed the term limits with only one dissenting vote.
