While skimming the online version of the Journal, I noticed the recent clip about the upcoming mayoral race, in which both Richard Berry and Richard Romero promised to stick to the now-overturned two-term limit for mayors.

I note that the two-term rule was struck down by a court decision after a request from the current incumbent, who is on his second term[1].

That incumbent also stated twice, both before and after being re-elected in 2005, that he would stick to the two-term limit.

If We the People can’t trust him on this, why should we trust him on anything else?
