Does term limits ruling mean end of the line for commission veterans Marcus, Aaronson?by George Bennett | August 10th, 2011
Palm Beach County’s term limits law has not been challenged. But the 4th DCA has jurisdiction over Palm Beach County, so a ruling overturning Broward term limits would have also overturned Palm Beach County’s limits.
It’s likely today’s ruling will be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court by foes of term limits.
Palm Beach County Commissioners Karen Marcus (elected in 1984) and Burt Aaronson (elected in 1992) both face term limits in 2012. Marcus has said she’d consider running for an eighth term and Aaronson said he’d definitely run for a sixth term if term limits were overturned.
