Baltimore County Council strikes bill to let voters decide term limits

March 2, 2021

A bill that would have allowed Baltimore County voters to decide whether to impose three-term limits on County Council members failed to get the five votes needed for passage. The bill introduced by Democrat Tom Quirk and Republican Todd Crandell was approved by a 4-3 margin Monday night, but because the bill could have changed the county charter, five votes were needed to advance it. Democrats Cathy Bevins, Julian Jones and Izzy Patoka voted against the bill.
