Power-hungry politicians make map to suit own ends

Letter to the editor

October 10, 2011

Congratulations! It takes a great deal of courage to publish an editorial (Oct. 6) in a one-party state advocating fair boundaries in congressional districts.

While most people prefer natural boundaries instead of political-party-count boundaries, professional politicians would rather draw snake-shaped districts to retain their personal power. It has nothing to do with giving the people what they want, but rather with grabbing the golden ring and a personal pedestal of honor.

The only solution is to vote all the bums out.
