    by performing your duties as a member of the GA, you can make yourself ineligible to run for another term?

    Insane.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

    •  no, it sure looks like you can run (0+ / 0-)

      The word's different: "a resident of the district" is a little looser than something requiring more continuous residence.

      •  Sorry, about that you are right (1+ / 0-)

        but it still apparently means that you can't run for Mayor of the city you legally represent (and could represent again).

        I don't think any reasonable person should accept that distinction.

        Ok, so I read the polls.
