We have a city council election coming up in a couple of weeks.
City council representatives are elected to four year terms. The can serve a maximum of ten years during their lifetime which effectively limits them to two elected terms.
One problem with this is that the current incumbents know that this is their last election. They have no need to do what the public wants during their second term if we give them one. They cannot be re-elected. Recalling them is very difficult and has not been successfully in modern times.
Voting for an incumbent is something you should think about.
We deserve better
