Análisis del analista legislativo / Proposal

San Diego County Counsel

You are asked to vote on a measure to impose term limits on the office of Member of the Southwest Community College District Governing Board. This measure was placed on the ballot by resolution of the governing body of the Southwest Community College District.

This measure, if approved by the voters, would bar members of the Governing Board from serving more than three terms of office. The limitation will apply only to terms that begin on or after December 1, 2018. Current and past members of the Governing Board may serve an additional three terms.

The three term limit is a life-time limitation. Once a member has served three terms, they may never again be elected to the office, even if there is a gap between terms. Any member who serves more than one-half of a term will be deemed to have served a full term.

A "yes" vote on the measure is a vote to adopt the term limits.

A "no" vote on the measure is a vote against adopting the term limits.

FULL TEXT OF MEASURE CC

SOUTHWESTERN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT GOVERNING BOARD TERM LIMITS MEASURE

FINDINGS

In 1996 the California State Legislature amended specific Government Code and Education Code sections to permit the governing body of a local public agency, including a community college district, to adopt a proposal to limit the number of terms a member of the governing board may serve and to submit that term limit proposal to the electors. The Southwestern Community College District ("District") Governing Board ("Board") believes that:

(a) Full and free access to elected offices is a right of all citizens;

(b) Unchecked multiple terms of incumbency allows the entrenchment of politicians creating an inequitable advantage in the electoral process;

(c) Ensuring equal access to the elected positions of the District is a critical public benefit and will reduce the cost of running for this important public office and remove the inherent advantage of incumbency allowing increased public participation in the electoral process;

(d) Setting a limit on the number of terms an individual may serve on the Board will cause a rejuvenation of the Board by bringing fresh ideas and broadening the range of persons making important decisions effecting the District, its students, and colleges and will create more competitive elections by ensuring that periodically the advantages of incumbency of a Board member will yield to increase citizen participation in seeking elective office.

TERM LIMIT PROPOSAL 

Pursuant to Education Code section 72103, the Board proposes to limit the number of terms a member of the Board may serve, for consideration by the electors, such election to be held on November 6, 2018. If approved by a majority of the votes cast by the registered voters residing within the boundaries of the District and voting thereon, an individual shall be prohibited from serving more than three (3) terms on the Board as follows:

No person may serve for more than three (3) terms as a Board member. No person who has served for three (3) terms as a Board member may seek election or appointment for additional service as a Board member.

Any person who serves in excess of one-half of a full term as a Board member by way of appointment, election, or any combination thereof, shall be deemed to have served one full term.

Any Board member who resigns or is removed from office with less than one-half of a full term remaining until the expiration of the term shall be deemed to have served a full term.

The limitation on the number of terms shall apply only to terms that begin on or after December 1, 2018.

The limits imposed by this Measure may only be amended or repealed pursuant to the requirements of the Education Code.
