Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino on Wednesday renewed his push for term limiting state elected officials, saying the measure would be the first bill he pushes upon taking office.

“We need new faces and fresh ideas in state politics, and it’s become clear that’s not going to happen without term limits,” Astorino said in a video released online this morning. “Even the best elected officials become compromised over time in Albany — not all, but enough to drag us down.”

Astorino has called for term limits before, and backs a plan that would limit statewide elected officials to two four-year terms and members of the state Legislature to four, two-year terms in office.

“Eight years is enough for anyone to serve in state government,” Astorino said in the video.

Astorino, the Westchester County executive, is using the hook of the latest news over the Moreland Commission having “lawyered up” in recent days in order to handle its dealings with U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office.

On Tuesday, it was revealed members of the state Legislature were asked to preserve all records relating to the investigation of the now defunct anti-corruption panel Gov. Andrew Cuomo disbanded in April following an agreement on ethics legislation in the state budget.

Cuomo’s office has not said whether it was asked by Bharara’s office to preserve Moreland-related documents as well.
