Eliminate term limits for Board?
Term limits seem like a good idea. We don't want people who can run again and again and again just because they have a cushy job. They can become "career politicians" and it's often good to have fresh blood and new ideas. But, in times like these when we have such grave deficits and problems, is it really the best idea to force people out who are familiar with and fully understand the issues? It would take so much time for others to learn what the term limited person already knows. San Francisco's Board of Supervisors is an example. Term limiting them means they are often unable to do the jobs we need them to do.
