There has been no need, reason or rational sighted for this proposed change.

All you have to do is look at Washington D.C., to determine that this is a bad idea.

Congress has now become loaded with career politicians, who grow old in their seats, fight among themselves, tax and spend.

Career politicians have a way of stalemating the government.

Want to be really turned off by extended term limits, watch your City Council meetings on television.

There comes a time that new faces, thoughts and ideas come into play for the best interest of the city and the residents of Port Arthur. And, so it is with Port Arthur.

Vote “NO” on increased of term limits.
