Letter: Term limits are needed

Published 10/25/2010, West Central Tribune

There are many clear differences this year between the candidates running for the House of Representatives in District 13B. Just one of those differences is where the two candidates stand on term limits. Bruce Vogel, a local businessman and family man, firmly believes in term limits. Bruce believes our Founding Fathers did not intend for public servants to become career politicians, and that the longer one stays in St. Paul, the more unattached they become from the people they are supposed to be serving. Al Juhnke, on the other hand, a career politician who has served for 14 years now, has stated that there is no need for term limits. This year, he actually voted no on a point of order to let an amendment even be heard that would have ended the use of taxpayer dollars for legislative pensions!
