Election Guide 2013: Yes on Rocky Mountain Fire Protection District Question 5B

By Boulder Weekly Staff

Rocky Mountain Fire Protection District Ballot Question 5B
Term limits

Vote Yes

It’s a shame this same ballot measure failed in 2011. This question asks if term limits should be abolished for members of the board of directors for the Rocky Mountain Fire Protection District, which serves Eldorado Springs, Marshall, Superior and large areas of unincorporated land.

In this case, it’s about expertise. Nobody is getting rich off the government payroll here; instead, after eight years they’re on their way out and a new board member must become familiar with the district’s assets and needs.

There’s a natural response among voters to approve of term limits and push back against installing anyone, anywhere, for life. But in this case, a board member willing to serve more terms means a better understanding of how to protect homes and businesses from fire threats in the foothills.
