Letter- Pollock Pines’ gerrymander

To the editor:

The letter that appeared in your paper by Jerome Waldie is a thickly-veiled attempt to hide the true reasons behind the proposed “Pollock Pines” redistricting plan. This plan proposed by Waldie and Supervisor Baumann would take moderate to liberal voting election precincts within the South Lake Tahoe city limits from District Five and place them in District Two. In their place would be placed election precincts from Pollock Pines that Supervisor Baumann lost in the November election.

This obvious gerrymander cannot be allowed to happen. On Thursday, May 24, at 1:30 p.m. at the Senior Center, the county redistricting committee will hold a meeting to obtain public input. Let’s pack that room and let Mr. Waldie know we won’t stand for his attempts to enhance Supervisor Baumann’s reelection chances at our expense.
