HARTFORD, Conn. – Just as quickly as Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy told reporters he hadn’t ruled out running for a third term, a Republican lawmaker said she would introduce legislation to limit gubernatorial terms to two.

Rep. Christie Carpino, R-Cromwell, said she planned to introduce a constitutional amendment to limit the term of governor to two four-year terms.

Currently, the state’s constitution does not limit how many terms one is allowed to serve as governor.

“Holding a monopoly over the executive branch does not promote good government,” Carpino said. “Fresh ideas that new candidates provide promote an environment that fosters the creation of sound public policy, regardless of party affiliation.”
