Sheriff's Association Considering Re-Introducing Term Limit Repeal

Local - 11/7/2012 4:53 PM
The West Virginia Sheriff's Association says they'll discuss re-introducing a proposed term limit repeal after it failed during Tuesday's election.

The measure failed by 52% to 48% margin.  Executive Director Rudi Raynes-Kidder says they were encouraged at the growing support for the repeal, but they'll meet with newly elected sheriffs before deciding whether to put it on the ballot again.

"We've had so many new sheriffs elected to office this time around, so, these new sheriffs, it will be in their hands if they decide if we want to try this again in 2 to 4 years," she says.

The measure's been defeated three times before.  West Virginia is one of three states to have term limits for sheriffs.
