RE “TIME for term limits across the board” (Letters, Oct. 18):
William Lawson suggests that a six-year term limit for politicians would get them to focus on the best interests of their constituents rather than on reelection. But isn’t retaining your job the best incentive there is for doing it well? That is certainly the principle at the heart of our democratic system. If there were term limits, any politician who wasn’t wealthy would likely be looking at landing a lucrative position as a lobbyist, knowing that unemployment was just a few years away.
I want my representative working for me — not for the K Street crowd.
