NYC votes to restore 2-term limit for mayor

New York City voters backed a measure to limit mayors and other officeholders to two terms, two years after Mayor Michael Bloomberg had the law changed so that he could run for a third time.

The billionaire mayor angered many New Yorkers when he hastily persuaded the City Council to change term-limits law in 2008, and many said Tuesday was their chance to be heard.
