The Slidell, La., City Council will seek an opinion on term limits from the state attorney general. Under the city charter, councilors are limited to two terms in a district seat and two terms in an at-large seat, with each term lasting four years. However, it is unclear whether councilors who have served a partial term can run for re-election twice. All nine seats are up for election this year, and the attorney general's opinion could affect three councilors.
