Interesting article but it fails to address the issues it raises. If a two hit mayor is better then the best must be Morrow? Don't think so. McCallion? Maybe, although we see what happens when nepotism creeps in. But i will support the idea that two terms is reasonable given that the mayor only has one vote so if progress is made in the first then ok for another term. Probably two is the optimum limit for mayor if not in music. (Comparing the two is poor methodology - which is why we are having our problem in the first place, imo.)

Methinks though the real issue is that councilors get returned ad nauseum. They should be limited to one term as per Athenian Democracy and chosen by sortition.
