Redistricting: They don't care what you think

I'm writing in reference to the article about Jim Schillinger's Anne Arundel County farm being lumped into a congressional district in Prince George County by redistricting ("Some Marylanders question odd pairings in proposed congressional redistricting map," Oct. 15).

News flash to Mr. Schillinger: The elected leaders in Annapolis could care less about your farm.

Democrats would like to see a one party rule and to give Maryland voters these two choices — either vote for a Democrat or vote for a Democrat.

This is nothing more then a power grab in Annapolis.
