Term Limits would reinvigorate Congress
The re-election rate in US Congress is well over 90%. Incumbents often don’t face a challenger. When politicians no longer fear losing an election, they stop representing the people. Representative democracy fails when elected officials are no longer listening to the voters. Career politicians become beholden to their party leadership and lobbyists.
80% of Georgia voters support Congressional term limits
The watchdog group US Term Limits is sponsoring a resolution that calls for an Article V Constitutional Convention to offer this amendment to the US Constitution. The Georgia Senate passed this resolution this year. However, the House leadership would not allow the bill to come to a floor vote in the Georgia House. Given that 80% of Georgia voters support Congressional term limits, perhaps it’s time for the Georgia House leadership to get with the program.
I am the best choice of Secretary of State
As Secretary of State, I will lobby the Georgia Legislature to pass the US Term Limits resolution for Congressional term limits. Georgia needs leadership that fights for election reform on behalf of the Georgia citizens.
