We have a minimum age to be elected to political office, we need a maximum age. There are capable people younger than the current standards, and there are people capable that are older than the new recommended maximum age standard of 69, but just as there are concerns about maturity which generated the minimum standard; there are even greater concerns about decline in cognitive skills in people in there 70s and beyond. Older people typically are less likely to support new ideas, new technology, and less likely to accept societal change. All types of health concerns also can be issues for individuals in there 70s and beyond.
