Lt. Gov. Candidate Calls For Lt. Gov. Term Limits
— Rick Jeffares Supports Constitutional Amendment to Limit Position to Two Terms – Same As Governor —
McDonough, GA –State Senator and candidate for Lt. Governor Rick Jeffares today called for a Constitutional Amendment limiting the Lt. Governor of Georgia to two four-year terms. This is the same limit applied to governors in the state constitution.
“I believe that term limits are good for politicians, their constituents and Democracy itself,” Jeffares said. “Citizens should serve, contribute their ideas and passion, then return to the private sector to live under the laws they pass.”
Jeffares said that he will push for the passage of such an amendment as Lt. Governor. “I am confident that any legislator not planning to run for the job will be more than happy to support such a move,” Rick said. “And that’s only a couple of ‘no’ votes.”
