Adopt Term Limits for Key State Offices

Too often our elected officials become career politicians, dependent on their party sponsors, their donors and special interests for their livelihoods and invested in a system where self and party come first. With the advantages of incumbency assuring their return to office, the result is elections that are uncompetitive and governance that is not responsive. While experience has its advantages, we believe that Connecticut should adopt appropriate term limits for its six constitutional offices (Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Treasurer and Comptroller) and for the State Senate and House of Representatives.
