Shall the Charter of the City of Sunnyvale be amended to standardize term limits for all city boards and commissions to two consecutive four-year terms and eliminate the two-year waiting period before a board or commission member may apply to serve on another board or commission?
Article X, Section 1002, of the City Charter of the City of Sunnyvale provides that the terms for appointed members of boards and commissions is one four-year term, which can follow appointment to an unexpired term of less than two years.

All board and commission members are ineligible for appointment to any other City of Sunnyvale board or commission for two years after the expiration of their last full term.

The amendment also eliminates the mandatory two-year waiting period between the expiration of the last full term on a board or commission and eligibility for appointment to a different board or commission.
