As the issue of term limits heats up locally, El Paso County Commissioners Sallie Clark and Dennis Hisey find themselves in the national spotlight, of sorts.

Commissioners will hear comments from citizens at two meetings next week about whether to allow voters to revisit November 2010 ballot measures that gave county elected officials a third term. Some have cried foul saying the measures were worded in a way that led voters to believe they were restricting officials to three terms, rather than extending the two-term limit by one, four-year term.

The meetings will be next week, at 6:30 p.m., Monday at the Pikes Peak Regional Building Center, 2880 International Circle; and at 9 a.m., Thursday at the County Office Building, 27 E. Vermijo Ave.
