ChangeNYC.Org Unveils New Ad Challenging Term Limits Extension

ChangeNYC.Org, a new grassroots nonprofit organization fighting for good government in New York City, is inaugurating its progressive agenda for change with an internet ad challenging Mayor Bloomberg and the City Council’s proposed legislative change to the City’s term limits law.

The ad, featuring real New Yorkers, asks the question: “What if George W. Bush wanted a third term?”

ChangeNYC.Org was initially slated to launch after the Presidential election to recruit and organize New Yorkers to be agents of change in their own communities. However, the Mayor and Speaker Quinn’s unprecedented power grab compelled ChangeNYC.Org to move up its timeframe and launch its first Citywide initiative for change immediately.

On the website it launched today,, the nascent organization promises that it will be “growing quickly and showing you plenty of ways you can keep the energy of change thriving throughout the five boroughs and beyond.”
