Don’t Touch Term Limits

Did you see the “big pig” rolling around Port Huron yesterday? The 18-foot giant hog could be seen near Sixth and Court Street late afternoon following a tour through the thumb. According to Scott Tillman, State Coordinator for Don’t Touch Term Limits, the display is meant to protest attempts by lobbyists and state legislators to change Michigan’s term limits. 

In November 2019, a group of lobbyists and former legislators filed a lawsuit to overturn Michigan’s term limits. According to a new poll conducted by Pulse Research, and commissioned by U.S. Term Limits (USTL), a supermajority of Michigan voters supports keeping the state’s current 6 and 8-year term limits. The poll found that 69 percent of Michigan voters oppose changes to term limits which would enable legislators to stay in office longer. 

Don’t Touch Term Limits! is a grassroots, non-partisan, non-profit organization formed to “defend the 1992 vote of the people of Michigan for term limits.” The display also made stops throughout the day in Sebewaing, Bad Axe and Sandusky.
