You may also recall that this was also the case in the county during the primary of 2010.
The numbers were too say the least, were dismal. If they want a career in public service there are other agencies where they can accomplish that. Notice is said service, not power.
Term limits are not unrepresented in our government.
I'm not disappointed if apathetic voters do not turn out to vote. That's probably a good thing. It leaves the decision making to those who do care, even if they hold a different opinion than mine.
I am not at all certain that term limits at the local level would result in better political results. As voters, we get the chance to impose term limits at each election by voting people out. Newt Gingrich is the poster boy of those who supported term limits, and yet he has spent the past couple of decades trying to get back into office.
I am beginning to think that the best hope for Maryland is to work within the Democrat Party to push it back to center.
If we have term limits in numerous other government positions why not all of them. There are many ways to serve the public without the fringes of power, 40 years or more.
The current condition of the country shows change is needed.
You and I may know the issues but many people vote on name recognition. Do you think DC Councilman Marion Berry is a solid choice?
Don't blame me, I voted for Bartenfelder.
I worked for a large private employer, who made a big deal of the fact, in their hiring documents, that they did NOT discriminate against veterans.
I would think that private employers would be inclined to want to hire veterans.
