Term limits...place your bets now


The Caddo Commission (think Police Jury) has been term limited to 3 terms. A lot of the board members (who are paid well) will be term limited out. So, they are voting today on a resolution to abolish term limits.

My question: How do you think the vote will go?

Is it three term limits total, or three full term limits after the passage of the legislation?

If the former - fail, if the latter, it passes.

3 term limits is the status quo ever since a 1991 vote by the public. The resolution is to abolish the 1991 term limit rule.

If the resolution passes today it will go on the ballot for public vote. They can't abolish term limits outright since it came from a referendum.

By passing the resolution today the implication is: "The public now realizes how foolish they were in 91 to not see how wonderful we are and that we should stay in office governing them for as long as we like."

We need the same term limits on congress that we have on the Presidency.

You underestimate the sleaziness of politicians. Once the resolution is passed they'll pick a date when almost nothing else up for vote.

Then, they will word the resolution so that no one understands it:

"That the rule of term limits shall not be non revocable unless revoked by a non vote of the public."

Then, they will send notices to all parish employees "Vote for this or you lose your job."
