Term Limits

The Founding Fathers and Their Vision:
  • The founding fathers never envisioned career politicians when they wrote the constitution.

  • Instead, they envisioned citizen politicians.

George Washington's Precedent:
  • When George Washington became president, some of the founders wanted to make him president for life.

  • However, Washington saw the possible problems in making someone a president for life.

  • He chose to serve two terms and then simply walk away from politics.

Advocacy for the Town of Cortlandt:
  • One of the things that I would like to see done in the Town of Cortlandt are term limits.

How We Can Achieve This:
  • A referendum would be established for the voters to decide on term limits.

Specific Proposals:
  • A councilman/woman would serve two four-year terms for a total of no more than 8 years.

  • The town supervisor would serve four two-year terms or no more than 8 years.
