Letter: It's time for term limits
It's time to start talking about term limits. We have way too many politicians who have turned their public service into a full-blown career. Public office was never meant as a way to pay the bills.
Think about this: Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota's 7th Congressional District has been in the U.S. Congress for 22 years. That's longer than the average private-sector career. I am only 21 years old, Peterson has been in office longer than I've been alive. Folks, it's time for a serious conversation about the merit of term limits.
