Lori Trahan Flip-Flops On Term Limits, Four Years Into Congressional Career

January 21, 2023

U.S. Representative Lori Trahan (D-Westford) is no longer in favor of term limits.

When Trahan first ran for her current U.S. House seat in 2018, she signed a pledge from U.S. Term Limits saying she would serve only six years in the United States House of Representatives and support legislation enacting term limits.

Now, Trahan is backing away. She says that she now opposes term limits.

She is not backing House Joint Resolution 11, which would limit politicians to three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and two terms in the U.S. Senate.

Why does she oppose it?

“Now that I’ve learned more, I have changed my mind on this specific legislation,” Trahan told The Eagle-Tribune. “I think term limits of some length make sense, but this proposal is too rigid and would make it harder to get results for working families like the one I grew up in.”

Trahan began her third two-year term in office earlier this month.
