Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield filed a lawsuit as a private citizen last week in Cheyenne to consider a ruling on term limits for the state's executive office.
The law was ruled unconstitutional by the Wyoming Supreme Court in 2004, but the issue was not pursued by state courts as it did not receive backing from then-elected officials.
Jack Adsit, of Sheridan, who was responsible for pushing legislation to set term limits in 1992 in the state, said Thursday that Maxfield should “respect the will of the voters”, and serving longer than two terms goes against the vision of the Founding Fathers.
Maxfield is in his second term as Secretary of State.
