Voice: Filner respods to redistrictign article

March 15, 2002

Regarding "Deal-making helped redraw Valley districts," on March 7: The people of Imperial County — and of the entire state of California — should be disturbed by the secretive deal-making that produced new political boundaries after the 2000 census. When new districts are drawn in back rooms in Sacramento, democracy is threatened because the people are left without real choices at the polls.

I look forward to representing Imperial Valley for the next two years. And I will fight in the future to make sure that this county is not tossed about like some political trading chip by opportunistic Sacramento politicians.

BOB FILNER
