A question headed for the November ballot will give county voters a chance to remove term limits from the four county elected positions that still have them.
On Monday, the Board of County Commissioners approved wording for the question of removing the current three-term limits from county clerk and recorder, county treasurer, county surveyor and county assessor.
Each of the four offices will appear as a separate question on the ballot, and the wording follows that used in 2012 when sheriff and coroner term limits were removed by voters, explained county clerk and recorder Ann Eddins, who is in her third term. She told the DCI that she will not run again even if the measure passes.
The county commissioners' terms are not included in the ballot question, pointed out commission chair Doug Atchley. The commissioners are limited to two terms of office.
County treasurer Jim Ventrello is currently in his third term, which expires in November 2014.
County assessor Debbie Griffith is in her first elected term, which also expires in 2014.
County assessor Jesse Messenger was elected to the first of his two consecutive terms as county surveyor in 2006, an inquiry of county records showed. His term also expires in 2014.blog comments powered by Disqus
