Ed Priola for Delegate

Vote to End "Tax and Spend"

It's Time for Term Limits

Politicians should serve two terms and then return to live under the laws they

pass for everyone else. This is Ed Priola's belief. Currently, Maryland legislative terms are four years long. Unfortunately, too many legislators have held office for decades. Term limits are needed to bring back a "citizen legislature."

 

Ed Priola founded the Maryland Term Limits Coalition (MD-TLC) and organized a Term Limits Pledge Signing Ceremony on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at Harry Browne's Restaurant in Annapolis. A copy of the Term Limits Pledge is included below.

Term Limits Pledge

Whereas, the proper role of elected officials is to represent their constituents and their communities, serving for a limited period of time and then returning to private life, and

 

Whereas, the primary focus of too many elected officials has become re-election and gaining political power in their respective parties, and

 

Whereas, I am currently a member of the General Assembly or a candidate for the Maryland General Assembly,

 

Therefore, re-elected or elected, I pledge to vote for legislation that will put in place a constitutional amendment that will limit the terms of Maryland State Senators and Delegates to no more than two consecutive terms in office, and upon passage of this legislation subject myself to the limits imposed from that point forward.

 

I, __________ do hereby sign my name to this Pledge on this _____ day of _____, 2010.
