Speaking only for myself as one of the often more controversial members of the AC, I will say that I have been pleasantly surprised
each time I have been re-elected. While I do vote for myself when applicable, I only have the ability to cast 3 votes as I am the DMR for
three organizations, all ISPs, two of which are pretty small. As such, I think it is pretty hard to make the case for self-perpetuation.

The number resources I hold do not have voting rights as I have chosen not to pay an additional $500 for that privilege. Personally, I think it is a travesty that non-ISP resource holders do not get voting rights without paying an additional fee. I have brought this up many times, but it hasn’t gone anywhere.

At the risk of sounding self-serving, I oppose term limits for the same reasons already articulated by Paul.
