Should the post of mayor of Stanton be subject to term limits?

At Tuesday’s meeting the city council will consider directing staff to draft an ordinance and place it on the Nov. 4, 2024 ballot.

Stanton has had term limits for city council members since 2016, but the mayor’s position – elected directly by voters – is not subject to those limits.

Councilmember Gary Taylor originally raised that issue earlier this year. David Shawver has been on the council since 1988 and served several terms as mayor, winning the office most recently in 2022 with no opposition.

Also on the agenda is a discussion regarding homelessness and habitual transients within the city, as well as a discussion regarding prostitution within the city.

The council will meet at 6:30 at the Civic Center, 7800 Katella Ave.
