Following his earlier success with charter revision Mayor Marc H. Morial in 2001 sought the prize that had eluded his father and Chep Morrison. His effort to have the charter amended to allow him and future mayors to run for three consecutive terms found stiff opposition throughout the city, including from among the members of the City Council. Shown here is a staff memberís summary of a press conference called by four council members to express their views on the matter along with a press release issued by Mayor Morial in response to the council membersí presentation. In the end, the council members were on the winning side as, once again, the charter revision went down to defeat.
