Allentown voters approve bill to limit mayoral terms

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Voters in Allentown overwhelmingly voted for placing term limits on the city's mayor.

Mayor Ed Pawlowski vetoed that bill back in June, but city council voted unanimously to override it.

The bill would limit the mayor to two terms.

Those terms could run consecutively or one term at a time, and not include time served toward an unexpired term.

Voters approved the referendum 72 percent to 28 percent.
