If you drove by the corner of Main and Elm Street last Friday, December 5, and thought you saw a 10-foot tall wooden horse, it wasn’t your imagination.

The carved wooden horse is a mascot of the “Citizen Cavalry,” rallying against any attempt by state legislators to alter the term limits voters enacted in 1992.

“It takes a big horse to scare away lame ducks,” said Scott Tillman, state coordinator for Don’t Touch Term Limits! “We’ve formed a citizen cavalry to remind politicians like Rob VerHeulen and Lisa Lyons that they answer to the people on term limits, not the other way around. Term limits were introduced by citizens not politicians. It’s time these two representatives got on the record, letting the people of their districts know if they plan to vote against the citizens and lengthen their own term limits.”

The ten-foot horse made stops in Rockford, Cedar Springs, and Greenville.
