“We need to start putting people over politics and in order to do that, we need Congressional members who are responsive to the people they represent rather than PACs and lobbyists. Term limits is the answer. That’s why I am proud to be heading up this effort.”
“I know that the people of Kansas want their voice heard in Washington. Term limits will give us that voice."
Leigh Brown - North Carolina
Leigh Brown is an award-winning realtor, author and motivational speaker. She built a successful real estate career serving Carolina residents. Her public service roots extend deep in the community, including work as a board member for the local Habitat for Humanity, and the YMCA, as well as dozens of other professional affiliations and awards for service to her clients and her profession.
In 2019, Brown proudly signed the U.S. Term Limits pledge as a candidate to represent North Carolinians in Congress. “Far too many members of Congress seem to forget they are elected to represent their constituents, and instead act as if they’ve secured a job for life. Well, our founders didn’t see it that way, our elected governance structure was designed to be one of citizen leadership. Community leaders serve – and then step aside for others to serve. A small group of individuals holds power in our current system, and they are using that power to reward themselves and their friends. Without term limits, Congress loses touch with the people they are elected to represent.”
Chris Ekstrom is a successful entrepreneur and President of Ekstrom Properties. In 2020, he ran for Congress in Texas 13th Congressional District, encompassing Amarillo and Wichita Falls, and proudly signed the Term Limit pledge. Ekstrom has served as a chairman for the Courageous Conservatives PAC and been a member of the National Rifle Association.
"I am a firm believer in term limits for Congress. Our founding fathers never intended for a class of career politicians who focus more on re-election than policy. With 95 percent of incumbents getting re-elected, new ideas and new voices are stifled. It is time to restore our founding father’s vision of a citizen legislature where people serve for a short time and then return back to their community."
