The incumbent county council members are a devious bunch. They want to extend their own term limits, so they can stay in office for 12 years. They tried to hide this in a measure which would move their elections to odd years. The other measures are meant to cover up this extension of term limits also. These self-serving measures are a good example of why we need to keep the eight-year term limits for county council.
I want to keep Ranked Choice Voting, so more candidates will challenge the incumbents. The Council wants to revert back to the system used in 2006 when none of them had opponents. They are trying to rig the system to be able to stay in office for four more years with little or no opposition and collect their additional $500,000 in salary and benefits.
Don’t let them get away with it. Make them find another job. Say no to gerrymandering by rejecting all 3 charter amendments.
