Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, the Tennessee Chair for U.S. Term Limits will be the guest speaker at the Johnson County Republican Party bi-monthly meeting on September 23rd. This stop is part of Mayor Jacobs’ statewide tour in promoting Congressional term limits. The meeting is being held at 6:30 PM at the Johnson County Public Library at 219 N Church St, Mountain City, TN 37683. Mayor Jacobs is known to millions as the three-time world champion, WWE wrestler, “Kane”. In recent polling over 78% of Tennesseans supported Congressional terms limits. Mayor Jacobs will discuss the process to get term limits adopted, where it stands in Tennessee currently, and the outlook moving forward. Mountain City State Representative Scotty Campbell has voted in favor of legislation for Congressional term limits.
“I am glad to be speaking with the Johnson County Republican Party and discussing how essential terms limits are for our nation,” said Mayor Glenn Jacobs. “America is more divided than ever before but there is one thing all Americans agree on – the need for Congressional term limits.
“Congress was never intended to be a lifelong job,” continued Mayor Jacobs. “But that is what it has become. And without term limits, we will see even more lifelong politicians.
“But there is a way to change this,” concluded Mayor Jacobs. “The U.S. Constitution provides the solution in Article V which gives the states the authority to convene to propose amendments to the Constitution. My goal is to make sure the state of Tennessee is the next state to pass a resolution for states to add term limits on Congress to the U.S. Constitution. And with supporters like Scotty Campbell we will get it done.”
