Dear Editor,


In an article this morning in the Sunday Times, Ms. Lisa Vorderbrueggen attempts what many feel is an oxymoron. Her journalism points to current redistricting by supervisors as an exercise in democracy while pointing to the self-serving proposal #9 as being decided to serve supervisors' self-interests in future re-elections. Democracy does not exist when supervisors fail to serve the will and interests of Contra Costans.

The article is thorough but leaves much to be reported by the Express as such self-serving redistricting impacts 680 south communities. What is claimed to be democracy is an oxymoron for what many consider corruption. Your local viewpoint in our region could define such thinking as it applies to your Alamo, Diablo, Blackhawk and Danville readers.
