As Mayor of West Palm Beach

Editorial from the Palm Beach Post states that “West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel apparently believes that the city won’t be able to live without her. She wants voters to change the rules so she can run for an unlimited number of terms.” It contimues “In fact, the committee’s aim is to keep Mayor Frankel in power. It begins work one year before Mayor Frankel’s second term ends, triggering the limit that would force her from office. If her push to end term limits proves to be unpopular, the mayor has a backup plan that would give her an additional 20 months in office. That plan calls for timing mayoral elections with presidential elections. Instead of leaving office in March 2011, Mayor Frankel would stay until November 2012.”

Lois Frankel’s traffic stop: There are no records! According to this link the then Mayor was not given her $411.00 speeding ticket for speeding though a school zone.
