Nenshi for 3rd Term

You'd be hard pressed to find one person who would say Mayor Nenshi's time as mayor has been an outright bust. The ones you would find are angry people who aren't quite straight. Yes, some misgivings, and perhaps some hubris, but overall he's been a good mayor for Calgary. He's announcing a third term. It's a civic election where about 1/3 of eligible voters come out, so chances are he's a shoe-in. I'm fine for another term, but at some point we may want to look at, as a city, at mandated term lengths. 2-3 terms max. You have career Councillors (I'm thinking of some from down SOUTH), who've been on staff for a GENERATION. Just a thought.
