At least that’s a conclusion from the Springfield N-L which glances at the possible cost of the upcoming Wildberger and Wood special elections.
Although while the article mentions Louis Ford resigning to give his son an upper-hand, it doesn’t mention how much it cost to hold a special election where only 330 people voted.
Term Limits have some apparent flaws. The main pro of term limits from my point of view involves Matt Bartle and Cynthia Davis not being in the state government in 2011. Although i’d imagine that the number of good legislators forced out by term limits has to be far longer than the list of controversial/lousy legislators forced out by term limits.
