Term Limits and Joe Citizens

Many organizations, clubs, and even the Office of the President have term limits. It is not undemocratic to limit the amount a time that one can serve the public as a politician. The citizens have spoken through the charter commission to allow additional discussion at the ballot box on this issue. We encourage citizens to vote for term limits.

1. Term limits downgrades seniority, favors meritocracy.
2. Increases competition, encourages new challengers.
3. Builds a ‘citizen’ body, drives out career politicians.
4. Helps break ties to special interests.

Here are some more good reasons for term limits.
