In both Nassau County and New York State governments, there are currently no term limits for elected officials. Suffolk County passed a law in 1993 limiting legislators to a total of 12 years in office. Those in favor of term limits believe newly elected officials are necessary for fresh perspectives and change. Those against believe term limits deprive the people of the right to re-elect officials with a proven track record. Do you support term limits for Nassau County and New York State elected officials?
