A message from Rep. Doggett:
By now, you have seen the TV and newspaper reports on Republicans outrageous redistricting proposal that cuts Travis County into five congressional districts. Earlier this afternoon, the Texas House tentatively approved the plan. Many of you have asked me how you can help. In addition to tweeting about it, posting messages to your Facebook friends, and blogging, I am encouraging folks to record short videos, upload them to YouTube, and post them here on my Facebook page. I have said that this redistricting proposal is dangerous for families, but we need to hear from you. Why would this redistricting proposal be detrimental to you and your family? Why is this map the wrong answer for Travis County? I look forward to viewing your videos and sharing them with other folks who are committed to fighting efforts to split our unique community.
