I'm disappointed that the reporter did not learn more about Measure A before writing this article. The Water board was already subject to term limits with a maximum of 3 terms. Measure A was a purposely deceptive initiative by water board members to extend their term limits to 4 terms. Unfortunately their deceptive advertising fooled not only this reporter, but a slight majority of voters, and so squeaked by. The water board members should be ashamed of themselves.

Never underestimate the intelligence of the electorate. Perhaps an affirmative voter could weigh in. Term limits is a nonpartisan election reform supported by 80% of Americans.

Mr. Gibboney(?) - executive Editor of the Voice / PA Weekly.

Please have your local edition editors withdraw this article - have the reporter read your papers' own previous reporting (and the League of Women Voters analysis)
and - give us better reporting. Please. (a subscriber)

A YES vote is a vote to approve this amendment to Ordinance 11-01, increasing the number of terms that members of the Board may serve to four (4) successive 4 year terms (16 years total).

A NO vote is a vote to reject this amendment to Ordinance 11-01 and maintain the current term limits of three (3) successive 4 year terms (12 years total)."
