Roswell Mayor Jere Wood testified Monday in a case that questions his ability to remain in office.
In 2010, the Roswell city council passed an ordinance saying that the mayor would be limited to three consecutive terms.
Monday, Wood and city attorney David Davidson testified that the term limits weren’t supposed to be retroactive.
The case is being heard in Fulton County Superior Court by Judge Craig Schwall. He asked attorneys to send him briefs supporting their arguments by June 15. A ruling would come after.
