Proposition 5 was defeated Itv a 683 votes, with 2,305 voting against it, and 1,622 voting for the amendment. Under the current city charter, council members may serve two consecutive three-year terms, but no more than three terms during a lifetime. In other words, after two consecutive terms, an incumbent council member must skip a term before serving again. Some argued that allowing council members to serve three consecutive tenns would allow them to be more effective. "Ive seen cities do it both ways,” said City Manager Chuck Pinto before Saturday’s election. Mayor Adam Cork he wasn’t surprised that voters chose not to make the change. “Generally speaking, I think people believe that there’s a pow er thing associated with council members who could serve three consecutive terms,” he said. “It didn’t really make sense to me to make a council member skip a term before being allowed to serve a third tenn, but die ultimate term limit is always the ballot.” Proposition 22, which would not have required the city attorney to live within the city of New Braunfels, was defeated by a narrow margin of 11 votes, with 1,961 voting against it, and 1,950 voting for the amendment. Cork speculated the amendment was largely misunder stood by voters. “New Braunfels is close to San Antonio and other cities,” he said. “It’s likely that in the future we could find a qualified candidate for the city attorney’s position who lives nearby but didn’t want to move to New Braunfels, and I just don’t think there needs to be a requirement that the city attorney should have to live in New Braunfels.” MAYOR CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Boyer says city needs some changes the fact that the city attorney is also the deputy city manager presented a conflict. “I think that needs to be looked at,” he said. “I think theres a professional conflict, not a personal conflict.’’ Boyer and two other new ly elected city councilwomen, Kathleen Krueger, who defeated Travis Worn mack and Lynn Limmer, who beat Ken Valentine, will be sworn in on May 16. For the first time in the city’s history, the New Braunfels city council will consist of all women council members, except for the mayor. Boyer and the two winning council members will take their seats on the council after tile current council canvasses the vote.
