At this point the vote count has the measure passing by 9 votes.
Here is the detail on Measure Q:
Amend the city of Garden Grove’s term limits.
What it would do: Amend the city’s term limits ordinance to reduce the time a two-term council member must sit out before running again, from four years to two years.
Chief proponents: Mark Rosen, mayor pro tem; Bruce Broadwater, city councilman; Charles Mitchell, service officer with American Legion Post 555.
Chief opponents: Mayor William Dalton, City Councilwoman Dina Nguyen.
Main arguments in favor: Measure Q would allow the mayor and council members to be treated equally. A two-term council member has to sit out four years before being able to run again, while a mayor has to sit out two years.
Main arguments against: Voters already approved term limits. Measure Q would have no benefits to the taxpayers, only to politicians.
