I was glad to see the pictures and ages of the politicians running for office.

I am sorry, but there should be term limits and age limits for these people. Frank E. Mrvan, age 80; Vernon G. Smith, 69; Mary Elgin, 69; Clorius L. Lay, 73; Roy Baldwin, 73; and Michael J. Aylesworth, 71.

Didn't these people ever hear the word retirement? Time for more younger blood in office. We need a change.
