Well, aren't you a parasite for sore eyes.
During election season, voters – and sometimes candidates – argue that we should have stricter term limits for public office holders. While our national legislature is not term-limited like the presidency, one hyper-local legislature is. The Prince George’s County Council is the only local council in the Washington region that limits its members to two four-year terms. And now, Montgomery County is considering a ballot measure that would restrict its members to three four-year terms, a proposal that could cause significant turnover on the county council.
