I want to thank The Trumbull Times for the article on the Voter Initiative Petition that was launched on Nov. 6. In order to avoid confusion and any misrepresentation of the effort, I am writing this letter to give the voters the facts so they can decide whether to become a part of this process.
This has nothing to do with partisan politics. While the Democratic Town Committee is sponsoring the effort, volunteers working on this petition are Republicans and unaffiliated voters as well as Democrats. The change in district structure impacted all voters, and a change back to a seven-district plan will benefit all voters.
