Charter Amendment: Disqualification from Office for Felony Conviction, Mayor

Description:

This Charter Amendment, if passed, would make anyone who is convicted of a felony while holding the office of Mayor ineligible to remain in office and ineligible to ever hold the office again.

Section 421(c)(1) (D.C. Official Code § 1-204.21(c)(1)) is amended by striking the phrase "to be held; and (C) is" and inserting the phrase "to be held; (C) has not been convicted of

a felony while holding the office; and (D) is" in its place.

Within ten (10) days of the publication of these formulations in the D.C. Register, any registered

qualified elector who objects to the formulations may, pursuant to 3 DCMR Chapter 4, request a

hearing before the Board to raise any objections and to correct any alleged inaccurate or

prejudicial short title or summary statement.
