Cincinnati City Council has enough votes to put an issue on the ballot to change the term of council members from two to four years. I'm torn on this. I get the logic of it, but I like the idea of having the ability to vote the bums out when they screw up.
We need a broader set of council structural reforms and this could be part of it. We need to consider changing the at-large only aspects of council and other elements, not just the length of term. I would prefer if a larger effort were made to discuss all reforms in city government, but this particular change is too good for some on council to pass up.
