New Charter Amendment on Mayoral Elections' Ballot
It could turn their three year term into a four year term. A Charter Amendment on the 2013 Gainesville Election ballot would increase Gainesville city officials' stay in office. Registered voters head to the polls to elect a new Mayor and District IV City Commissioner. Also on the ballot is an amendment to change city elections to every other fall, and give commissioners four year terms starting in 2018.
"These are the folks who are making the decisions about your day to day life, what rules and regulations will be in place for you living here in the City of Gainesville. It's an opportunity to let your representatives know by your vote what direction you would like the City to move in." Pam Carpenter (Supervisor of Elections) said.
