TERM LIMITS

On November 2, 2010, the voters of the City of Hemet adopted Measure W limiting the number of terms a person may serve as an elected official to three terms. The language is codified in Hemet Municipal Code Section 2-37 and reads as follows:

During their lifetime no person shall serve, whether by means of election or appointment, more than three terms of office as a city council member, as the treasurer, or as any other elected city official. This term limit shall be applied separately to each different type of elected office held. A partial term of office shall be considered to be a full term where more than one-half of the regular term of office has been served. This measure shall apply prospectively, taking effect as to terms commencing in 2012 and thereafter.

Terms that commenced prior to 2012 are not counted for the purposes of Section 2-37. At this time, there are no individuals in the City of Hemet who have served three terms that commenced in 2012 or after.
