If you look at the districts I mentioned on the map, that is what we have now.So the guy who grew up and lived his life in High rises should represent and understand the wants and needs of a farming community ?
Again, that is what we have now to satisfy some bizarre and rather juvenile notion that if you can draw a line around two people's residence...they must have something in common.Or a guy grew up and lives in Beverly Hills should represent people's whose main concern is poverty and at risk youths ?
Yeah....When it comes to govt people who live around each other often have the same problems and likely would like people who understand their experiences.
The guy who represents Beverly Hills currently represents El Segundo.
Lots of shared experiences between Beverly Hills and El Segundo?
My plan, at the very least, allows the district to pick someone instead of having the folks in Sacramento pick someone for them through gerrymandering. And, if they aren't getting the job done...there is no political machine in the State Capitol making their district nice and safe for them--or someone else from the same party.
