Term limits terminated?

Aspen Times Staff Report

Voters in 23 counties were asked in November 1996 to rescind local term limits. Only five of those counties – Custer, Dolores, Fremont, San Juan and Washington – did away with some or all term limits. The limits remained in effect in 17 counties. Including the original five counties, 23 of Colorado’s 63 counties have rescinded term limits for at least some of their elected officials; voters in 32 other counties have come out in favor of keeping term limits in place, according to records from Colorado Counties Inc., an association that represents county commissioners on state and federal issues.
