There are many good reasons to support term limits, and maybe even a few not to. But the reasons to oppose it listed on a recent mailer don’t qualify. The flyer insinuates limits cause red-light cameras, taxes, parking meters and corruption investigations. Does that make sense?

Are the only folks able to lead with wisdom those in office now? How embarrassing if true! The issue is not competency; it’s longevity. A lifelong career on the council leads to shady partnerships, backroom deals, stagnant ideas and shortsightedness. Vote yes on term limits.
