This bill lowers the mayoral age requirement from 30 to 25. This change makes the Mayors age requirement consistent with that for City Councilmen. Under the City s Charter, if the Mayor resigns, dies or is unable to perform his/her duties, the Council President takes the Mayors place. This succession would prove problematic if the Council President does not meet the age requirement for Mayor.
