Term limits discussed at public meeting in Westchester
The idea of limiting Westchester legislators and the county executive to a maximum of 12 years is brought up every election year in Westchester, but this year the issue has received additional attention as it was discussed in a public hearing last night.
At the meeting, Westchester County legislators appeared evenly split on the issue. Some legislators say that term limits are not a good idea, as it would force out experienced politicians.
