Absolutely!!! No Career Politicans Allowed. Limiting the time Public Servants can serve will be in keeping with the State constitution for starters and secondly, gives other equally talented individuals the opportunity to run for public office. Incumbents already have the advantage and all too often discourages others from running for office.

See State Contitution Article 4 Section 1.5. which states in part....

These unfair incumbent advantages discourage qualified candidates from seeking public office
and create a class of career politicians, instead of the citizen representatives envisioned by the Founding Fathers. These career politicians become representatives of the bureaucracy, rather than of
the people whom they are elected to represent.
To restore a free and democratic system of fair elections, and to encourage qualified candidates to seek public office, the people find and declare that the powers of incumbency must be limited.
