Voters in Lake Ozark will decide between 2-year terms and 4-year terms for elected officials on April 6th.
“Right now we’re proposing Alderman and Mayor. It should be that way so they’re working hand and hand, and they’re better off if they’re not changing every minute.”
Alderman Larry Giampa tells KRMS News four-year terms give an elected official three years to get established before the final year is spent campaigning for re-election.
“When it’s two years, you’re working your butt off for the first year and then you’re looking over your shoulder again. Let us do our job!”
Giampa says he served four-year terms as an elected official for 25 years in Glendale Heights, Illinois before coming to the Lake Area.
