Coalition in Breckenridge Looking To Abolish Term Limits
A group of "business-oriented" individuals in Breckenridge have created a coalition to abolish term limits for Breckenridge Town Council members. The group is citing the concern that one election year there may not be a qualified slate of candidates, and term limits should be abolished to ensure experienced Council members can continue to serve. Next spring, two Council members, Jeffrey Bergeron, and Eric Mamula are term limited. The coalition is headed by a local restaurant owner, and one of the Council members who is term-limited owns two restaurants in town. Some are crying foul saying that it looks like the coalition is being driven by special interests. The coalition must collect more than 400 signatures for the initiative to be on the November ballot.
