Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

People are acting surprised that some incumbent Democrats tried to influence the redistricting commission.

I am not. Just as I wasn't surprised to watch elected officials in Simi Valley argue that Simi Valley must be in a congressional seat with Ventura County, not Santa Clarita, while staying nearly silent on Simi Valley being with Santa Clarita for the State Assembly.

The redistricting commission isn't perfect but it is better than the other methods we normally use.
