Cobb County 2016 Ballot Measures
Marietta Special Election
Non-Binding Referendum Term Limits
Should the Mayor and City Council for the City of Marietta request that the Georgia General Assembly for the State of Georgia amend the Charter for the City of Marietta to set forth term limits for the members of the elected body for the offices of the Mayor and City Council for the City for Marietta so that the term limits for the office of Mayor would be three consecutive terms and the term limits for the members of the Marietta City Council would be three consecutive terms commencing with the municipal elections of November, 2017 for terms of office commencing January, 2018?
This non-binding referendum, which functions essentially like a poll, asks Marietta voters whether they think their mayor and City Council should ask the Georgia Legislature to add term limits for elected city officials to the city’s charter. The term limits would be three terms for mayor and city council members, beginning for the terms of Marietta officials elected from the November 2017 ballot.
