Why Do We Even Have Congressional Districts?
Original post made by jrm, Vista Grande Elementary School, on Aug 24, 2010
If Mr. Harmer can run for the opportunity to be my congressional representative even though he doesn't live in my district why in the world do we even have the fictitious "districts" delineated as a result of decades long gerrymandering? Is this crazy or what? I am not an overt Jerry supporter as of yet but this is nuts. I have perhaps missed the outcome, but can someone enlighten me as to the past political effort to have a non political comission establish state and congressional boundaries for political districts. American, can you fill me in? Serious question, I lost track of that issue. Back to Mr. Harmer....if he is so awesome why not run for his own district? Should he win, he would reside at an address at which he is not representing, am I the only one that says whoa.....not here amigo....Hellloooo?
