Term limits gets rid of good ole boy clubs and popularity contests. Also no appointments to vacant seats. Should be held by election on a immediate basis. To many alderman appointed then become incumbent. From what I have heard Ed would not finish term if he wins and hand over to a friend to keep the same old club at city hall and then they are incumbent next time around! This from a person who spoke to Ed. That's bad politics and should not be legal. I have written senator on that issue.
