Hey, Marty! Pass the pickles — and let’s gut term limits

Borough President Markowitz (center) held court for his fellow beeps — Scott Stringer, James Molinaro, Helen Marshall and Adolfo Carrion — at Junior’s in Downtown Brooklyn on Monday. Naturally, the topic of term limits came up and, what a surprise, Markowitz and others favor extending the cap on their service.

Here’s our photo op of the week — all five borough presidents (who are they again?) dining with our own Beep, Marty Markowitz, at Junior’s on Monday.

The borough czars (from left) — Scott Stringer (Manhattan), James Molinaro (Staten Island), Markowitz, Helen Marshall (Queens) and Adolfo Carrion (The Bronx) — chewed over the big issues of the day (what are they again?) and, of course, weighed in on the one issue that actually affects them: term limits. Isn’t that special?

“Clearly I’m against term limits,” Markowitz said. “I think the electorate made a terrible mistake. I think it’s bad government.”

The others agreed, more or less, with Markowitz.

Also on the menu was brisket, which voters tend to swallow a lot easier.
