What should this election be about?
*Leadership by example*
At the Municipal Level
1- Anyone who is seeking a career, his/her main preoccupation is to protect that career, making choices and supporting decisions helping them to keep and advance their career.
It is completely the opposite in the case of a person who is committed to term limits (2-term). Their main concern is to do a good job so they can leave behind a good legacy.
2- Financial and campaign support goes to the incumbents because special interest groups already have them in their back pocket.
3- Accordingly, "term limits" will help to get BIG money and influential interest groups out of politics.
4- Ordinary people will have a real opportunity to run for office. They will not need to raise millions of dollars to compete with the incumbent’s war chest.
5- Term limits will open the door for more people with real-world experience from all walks of life to serve in elected office.
6- Term limits will bring more sincere people with relevant set of skills and management experience, which will improve efficiency and productivity.
7- The longer they stay, the more comfortable they get and being on council becomes just a job (not a service)-a "Sweet gig".
8- Media and public pressure will take its toll. An elected official becomes stale and would, badly, need a break.
