Bob Dani says he needs about 6,000 signatures of Oklahoma City voters to have the proposal placed on a citywide ballot. Dani is the moderator of the "High Noon Club," a weekly political forum at a local gun club, and a Republican who lost a race for an Edmond-area House seat in 2012.

Dani is a strong supporter of term limits and says the concept promotes more citizen legislators instead of career politicians and goes hand in hand with limited government.

His plan is for the mayor to be limited to two, four-year terms and council members limited to a total of 12 years in office.
