There are wonderful public servants across the country in all levels of government that have served their people very well and effectively for many years.
What problem do you hope to solve by implementing across-the-board term limits? Sounds like a solution looking for a problem, honestly.
Furthermore, what potential negative ramifications will this have?
Please use specifics. Talk about actual people and communities harmed by politicians who have held office too long, and talk about which (if any) good public servants would be forced to leave office and who will be taking their places.
This is your proposal. Flesh it out.
No. The Forum Site is about ideas from all sides. Mine is the question and I stated my position. Your position is stated, but you make a generalization that its a solution looking for a problem. OK, how? Then we can have others participate, if they choose, to comment on your position, as well. One thing, public servants are not necessarily all in elected positions. Fact is most public servants have to compete for their jobs, show some level of experience or competence, join a union, perhaps, and hope not to be laid off due to incompetence among the elected group. Case in point is this link where local elected officials are laying off firefighters due to the budget, but vote to spend almost $1MM on a work of art at the same time. link
This is why I include local officials, also.
I posed a question. You demand an answer from me, but provide only generalizations. Not getting into that trap with you. If there's no interest, the thread will die.
