The Generals of the 61st Assembly District

An odd coincidence.

Earlier I was reading something (I think it was in Real Clear Politics) that alleged that leaders in closed societies, such as Myana- ... Myanm- ... Burma, have no incentive to be responsive to the people.

Well, according to the Claremont Insider, gerrymandered districts have unresponsiveness issues of their own.

In this case, the "generals" are Nell Soto, Norma Torres, and Xavier Alvarez, who fail to serve the people in one way or another.

For example, you'll recall that when Goddess of Pomona requested statements from 61st Assembly District candidates, Norma Torres wasn't the first to respond. Ken White, who isn't insulated by assured money connections, is actually going out and campaigning.

Food for thought...
