Current Referendum
Fourth Quarter of 2021

Arguments FOR 

  • Limited terms of office will reduce the corrupting influence of money from special interest groups. 

  • Higher quality candidates will run for office if they aren't battling the financial advantages of the long-sitting incumbent. 

  • The President has term limits.  Why should legislators be more privileged?  

 Arguments AGAINST

  • Career politicians should be valued for their experience and long-standing relationships.

  • Newcomers to office can be more easily swayed by bureaucrats and lobbyists, actually making those groups more powerful.

  • Term limits aren't really necessary.  Office holders must stand for re-election on a regular basis.
