Currently, Palmer City Council members are not bound by term limits. This leads to decades of lackluster community engagement, voter apathy and a "this is how we've always done it" mentality.
During the summer of 2016 in response to popular demand, the Palmer City Council considered member term limits. The overwhelming majority of public input was in favor. The motion ultimately failed. Both incumbents running for re-election this October, were opposed to adopting term limits for city council members.
The City of Palmer is fortunate to have incredible residents. People who give endlessly to our community, to small businesses and to organizations doing great things to make Palmer even better.
We pride ourselves on our welcoming small town heart. Our city council should embrace this welcoming spirit and encourage dedicated residents to get involved.
Palmer City Council candidate, Kenni Linden “Psenak”, firmly believes that city council member term limits will encourage new and fruitful discussion within the city. Palmer is full of some of the best and brightest. We should encourage those passionate community members to lend their expertise and serve the City of Palmer. Too often, new candidates feel defeated before ever choosing to run. We need fresh eyes and new perspectives.
Public service is just that - service. We appreciate the gift of time and dedication that members give to the council. Term limits will encourage community-wide engagement, better voter buy-in and innovative city growth. Vote October 3rd!
