Port: Most of North Dakota’s statewide elected officials sign letter opposing term limits
MINOT, N.D. — On the ballot next month North Dakotans will get to vote on whether to put a term limits amendment into North Dakota’s Constitution, but most of North Dakota’s statewide elected officials have signed a letter opposing it.
The amendment would limit lawmakers to no more than eight years in a legislative chamber, and the governor would be prevented from seeking more than two four-year terms.
The amendment wouldn’t apply to any of the elected officials who signed the letter, which include:
- Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak
- Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler
- Treasurer Thomas Beadle
- Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring
- Insurance Commissioner Jon Godfread
- Public Service Commissioner Sheri-Haugen Hoffart
- Secretary of State Al Jaeger
- Attorney General Drew Wrigley
