Hogan's right about one thing: Md. district lines are ridiculous
Gov. Larry Hogan's proposal for a commission approach to redistricting is the best thing I've heard coming out of the governor's office since he took office ("Hogan: Redraw district lines," Aug. 7). I wish our politicians would be more interested in being public servants and less concerned about holding onto power and the perks that come with it. Some of Maryland's Democratic Party leaders appear to be overly driven by ego and opposed to true, open democracy. While I am a registered Democrat, and I am no fan of our current governor, I agree with him that the current congressional map of Maryland is ridiculous.
