Meaning of ‘Term Limits’ Disputed in Commission Race

A man seeking the Republican nomination for a spot on the Shelby County Commission has objections to Marilyn Loeffel running because of term limits. Loeffel left the commission in 2006, but Steve Basar says term limits should still apply. "I think the spirit of term limits is you get some new faces and new blood and new ideas in office," Basar said. "I view it as public service, somewhat like the president of the Unites States. You get two terms to do what you can do and you should move on and pass the reins to somebody else." The Commercial Appeal has more.
