On term lim­its, go lo­cal

The Citizens' Voice - - EDITORIAL -

Editor: When peo­ple hear the phrase “term lim­its,” they au­to­mat­i­cally think of the United States Congress and Senate. But, if you re­ally think about it, don’t most lo­cal gov­ern­ments, es­pe­cially in one-horse towns, have some­one who has been in of­fice far too long, with too lit­tle ac­com­plish­ments in their re­sume?

Yes, the per­fect ex­am­ple to get­ting rid of politicians who over­stay their wel­come is sim­i­lar to the food in your re­frig­er­a­tor which has an “ex­pired sell date.” It not only smells, looks and tastes bad, it can ac­tu­ally make you sick. Nov. 7 is just around the cor­ner. That is gen­eral elec­tion time.

If your in­cum­bent of­fice-holder has been around too long, it’s time to toss him or her and vote for a fresh start for your town.

I know that is what I in­tend to do in my town Nov. 7. Carl Wil­cox LUZERNE BOR­OUGH
