    Rather than just make term limits mandatory, I would offer another suggestion: provide an amendment that would allow a general election to be held to IMPEACH the mayor

    Ccurrently, it’s as impossible to get rid of him as removing you-know-what from the bottom of your shoe. Any proposal to allow impeachment to be done by the Council would be a joke.

    It’s time Metro Government got a wake-up call from it’s citizens.

    I agree totally. There should be an impeachment clause in the laws. Not just that a bunch of idiots in Frankfort have sway over us. They need to have it brought directly to the people. Which would make us a true democracy not one that has to wait for someone else to do their job like the current sycophants in power want us to do.
