NY1 VIDEO: A major vote by the City Council in October of 2008 reshaped the city's political future, as the mayor won his battle to run for another term in office. As we continue our look back at 20 years of NY1, the station revisits Michael Scotto's report from October 23, 2008 on a contentious day at City Hall.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: The mayor won re-election in 2009. But just a year later, in November of 2010, New Yorkers voted overwhelmingly to re-instate term limits. Under current law, politicians can only serve two consecutive terms in office. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
