    representative branch is a gentleman and a scholar
    and i am sure represents his constituency well.
    but for pete’s sake, he should consider declaring
    this is last term, if elected, and impose
    term limits on himself.

    at the national level, the newt gingrich authored “contract with america” had term limits as one of its goals. after the new congress became comfortable in their role on the dole, this so called “citizen legislature act” was never seriously considered or even brought to
    a vote.

    we need to return to the era of citizen legislators
    as selfless servants. representative branch could
    lead by example, urging his fellow representatives
    to do the same.
