Last term for Mayor Beutler

November 9, 2018

Lincoln voters ended Mayor Chris Beutler’s mayoral career Tuesday by approving a charter amendment that limits the Lincoln mayor to three consecutive terms.

The term-limits amendment, spearheaded by several prominent Republicans, applies retroactively, so Beutler cannot run for a fourth term next spring as he had planned.Voters narrowly approved the term-limits proposal despite a campaign of more than $160,000 against the charter amendment.
