LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
The mayor and village trustees in Potsdam are considering term limits for their positions and will have a proposal ready for a hearing later this month. Some village officials were supportive of the idea and some were not. Deputy Mayor Eleanor Hopke believes it is a good idea because people in such positions can get ’stale.’ Trustee Steve Warr is skeptical, saying he believes it might not be good to force people out of office after only a few years, particularly when so few people are seeking office.
Do you believe term limits are a good idea?
