An initiative to preserve existing term limits for the mayor and to impose the same limits on city council members, the city clerk, and the city treasurer is on the ballot for National Cityvoters in San Diego CountyCalifornia, on June 5, 2018.

yes vote is a vote in favor of (1) preserving the existing term limits of three consecutive four-year terms on the office of mayor and (2) imposing the same limits on council members, the city clerk, and the city treasurer.
no vote is a vote against (1) preserving the existing term limits of three consecutive four-year terms on the office of mayor and (2) imposing the same limits on council members, the city clerk, and the city treasurer.

National City voters approved a measure in 2004—Proposition T—to impose term limits on the office of the mayor. The proposition set a limit of three consecutive four-year terms on the mayor and did not affect other offices, such as those of council members.[1]

Measure C proposes preserving the limit of three consecutive four-year terms for the mayor and applying the same terms to council members, the city clerk, and the city treasurer.

Measure C is competing with Measure B, an initiative that was designed to repeal the term limits on the mayor and to introduce new term limits of two consecutive four-year terms on the mayor, council members, clerk, and treasurer. The competing initiative was designed to repeal Proposition T, thus allowing the mayor, Ron Morrison, to have the option of running for two additional terms. Ron Morrison became the mayor of National City in 2006. Under Measure C, he would be termed out in 2018.[1]
