Term Limits

Politics shouldn’t be a career.  Our elected officials should be citizen servants.  As Governor Herbert said when he first ran for re-election as governor, “I think our Founding Fathers always believed people would serve for limited periods of time and then go back and live with the laws they’ve passed.”  [Apparently, 26 years in elected political offices and two terms as governor isn’t a limited period of time.]

As governor, during my first 100 days in office I will work with the legislature to put in place a two-term limit on the governor to mirror the Twenty Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  I will then ask the citizens of Utah to amend Utah’s Constitution so future politicians can’t undo the law (like they did in 2003).
