20 years is long enough to wait.  In 1996 we passed term limits in Pinellas.

Do you remember?  

It was called Eight is Enough and passed by 73%!

The outcome was challenged by an elected official and tied up legally for years.  

Now the time is ripe to get the question on the countywide ballot again.

Barb will not relent in her pursuit of getting term limits on the ballot again.

There is no reason this mandate by the voters should linger any longer.  

Watch this video from September 2015 where Barb asks the Pinellas Charter Review Committee to do the right thing and put the referendum back on the ballot again:

                             "Here is a person of integrity. She created and ran the "No Tax For Tracks"  movement. She worked for years to save Pinellas County from a proposed Light  Rail that would have increased congestion and taxes in Pinellas. She didn't get  paid to do it, she did it because it was the right thing to do. There is no-one  better qualified to keep an eye on County spending and represent us, the  taxpayers of Pinellas!"  Jim Lampe
