Hey these council candidates are all running unopposed. Just like the school board. 

Have we no one in this whole big city of over 13,500 people who can and will run?

Well considering most people don't consider being part of the "club" of council members, why bother? It's only self-serving interests

It is that very attitude that keeps those in power, in power. Perhaps we need term limits on council seats to get new blood into the system.

We need this in Washington too. 

Ohio State House, Senate and Gov all have term limits. So it works at the state level.

Power tends to corruptabsolute power corrupts absolutely definition. An observation that a person's sense of morality lessens as his or her power increases. The statement was made by Lord Acton, a British historian of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Wouldn't it be great to have term limits at the National Level? I am getting to the point that I will support a primary challenger even if I basically like the incumbant! Even "my bum" needs to get the hell out of D.C. after 2 terms!!!
