Ending term limits is a bad idea

Kauai Councilmember Ross Kagawa’s proposal to eliminate term limits for councilmembers is a surprising and somewhat audacious move, especially since he would likely personally benefit if it were to pass. If this measure was placed on the ballot and approved by voters during the 2018 general election, it could possibly take effect and impact the 2020 elections where he would otherwise be “terming out” and be unable to run.
