From the OC Register:
There’s an advantage to being experienced in governing, but there’s no “monopoly of experience” once elected, said UC Irvine political science professor Mark Petracca. Elected officials, he said, “even at the local level, tend to lose sight of the people they’re representing.” There’s no magic term-limits number, but 12 years is “certainly enough to get something done,” Petracca said.
