Assembly term limits should be kept in place

Defining term limits? Our founding fathers of this great nation came together to put pen to paper to form a nation that would withstand centuries of controversy … human rights, civil war, the great depression. However when they gathered they did with the intent to go back to their farms and businesses so together we all would have a better place to live, raise our families and collectively be Americans!

Now today here in the Kenai Peninsula borough on Oct. 1st, we again for the fourth time must come together and send our vote to the politicians of the Kenai Peninsula Borough assembly. As some elected officials don’t think we the people understand what “No” means!

As Americans first and Alaskans second our elected political officials should hear from the good residents of the Kenai Peninsula Borough that We the People “do not” want to repeal Term Limits and two terms is long enough for borough assembly and when these individuals who pushed this through the assembly come back for election into any office send them back to their farms. If the makers of the constitution of this great nation that has withstood so much over the centuries were around today, I can’t help but to think what they would call these individuals who want to stay in office despite the will of the people.

Thank you for getting out and voting, it is not only our right, but it also honors all those who have made the sacrifice in the military to defend America’s right and privilege that sometimes we lose track of. Please Vote!
