Have residents of Huntington just been robbed of a chance to have all elected officials term limited, regardless of their policy making capabilities? During the recent controversy over the status of the highway superintendent's elected position, both councilman Eugene Cook and Mark Mayoka seemed to have missed their chance to roll Supervisor Frank Petrone and company over a barrel when they failed to trade the highway referendum for term limits. The superintendent's position would most likely have remained an elected one while the voters would have at least have had the chance to vote on term limits for ALL elected officials. Even if a deal has been just worked out, both councilmen made the issue of term limits a major part of their election campaigns and should continue to try to put this issue before the voters. If they fail to get term limits on the ballot this November, I can guarantee the next board candidate will make it an issue in 2013.
