We, the People should select our lawmakers, not the other way around.
The Pennsylvania Constitution demands legislative districts be compact and contiguous, and that they keep communities together. For too long these guidelines have been ignored in favor of gerrymandering districts to appease special interests or to amass political power.
It must stop here, in this year's redistricting process.
I am calling upon you and your colleagues to do your duty and make sure our state legislative and federal congressional districts are drawn to keep communities together and end our shameful status as one of the most gerrymandered states in America.
Please, do the right thing – for all of us.
