Will city scrap term limits to rescue Connie Ladenburg?

Although she's not known as someone who's accomplished anything at city hall, Councilwoman Landenburg wants the term limits provision of the city charter to be scrapped so that she can continue whatever she's trying to do. What do you think about this? Is Connie an unusually valuable part of the council whose desires should be accommodated or is it time for the electorate to select another office holder?

Syndicated columnist George Will discussed Connie's desire to remain in office beyond the limit imposed by the city. His column ridiculed the idea that Connie was "indispensible" to the workings of Tacoma's government. The column is in the Sunday edition of the Tacoma News Tribune. In my opinion, Mr. Will has hit the nail on it's proverbial head.
