Through elections, voters can enact term limits

To the editor:

Michael Hutchinson wrote an impassioned plea on the July 21 letters page to limit congressmen's term in office. While well-intentioned, it neither offered a suggested term limit, nor did it particularly address the core issue.

When asked about their own representation, most voters express satisfaction. It is usually the representatives from other districts that draw the ire of the people. That said, we effectively have term limits — they are called elections.

If you are not satisfied with your representation, then elect a new representative. However, you have no right to weigh in on the representation of another jurisdiction.
