Letter: Fairfield Rep Supports 10-District Plan

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The Fairfield Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. Send letters to Fairfield@dailyvoice.com.

I'd like to thank the six fellow Representative Town Meeting (RTM) members who have been working hard towards a voters’ redistricting plan. It must be fair and equitable regarding representation and they are taking their task seriously. Representation IS serious business; it's what our country is based upon.

By reducing the number of districts from 10 to eight, thereby increasing the number of voters from 6,000 to 7,500, as some plans suggest, that would be a 25 percent increase in voters per district. That’s huge. If we reduce the number of districts, we have watered down our representation. It's that simple.

After reading and listening to what's been discussed to date, it's clear that by tweaking some boundary lines of the 10 districts already in place, as recommended by the Registrar's Office, it would meet the needs of Fairfield voters and representatives mutually. The good people of Fairfield deserve to have RTM members who live in their neighborhood.
