Term limits on ballot, wording under study

March 15, 2011

Big Spring voters will get the chance to weigh in on proposed term limits during municipal elections in May, however, the length of the limits is still up in the air, according to city officials, thanks to conflicts in the amendment's wording.

The Big Spring City Council voted unanimously during a special meeting Monday evening to have the amendment — which was driven by a recent petition spearheaded by the local Concerned Citizens Council — placed on the ballot.

Most recently, Thomason ran unsuccessfully for the mayor's seat on the council in 2010, garnering 153 ballots — 5.34 percent — in his bid for the position. Thomason also ran for the mayoral seat in 2007, losing to longtime mayor Russ McEwen with 467 ballots, accounting for approximately 23 percent of the vote.
