So, let me see if I can get this straight. The deputy city attorney says: the voters in the old District 4 are considered to be the one whose rights would be violated if the boundaries were to be changed in the middle of an existing term,"
In what world do people who do not live in the represented area have the right to decide for those who do? It makes no sense. How can people who are NO LONGER represented by District 4 be disenfranchised by not being allowed to vote for someone who will NOT represent them? What world is Ms. Spivak living in? This makes no sense, and it is absolutely contrary to the idea of a representative form of government, which is supposedly what our entire government is based on. This is absolutely contrary to democracy in every way and absolutely illogical to boot. How dare anyone dismiss this in such a fashion and defend it at the same time.
