P-05-706 Keep our Councils Rejuvenated by Introducing a Fixed Term


This petition was submitted by Paul Stepczak, having collected 21 signatures.


Petition Wording

I am proposing that in order to keep our councils and communities moving forward, elected cabinet and council members can only remain in post for a maximum of 2 terms (8years) within our local authorities. This will provide a continuous cycle of local representatives that will bring new ideas and enthusiasm to our communities. It will also provide an opportunity for Wales to develop a new generation of young politicians.
