I will look with intense interest to see how our legislature justifies refusing to follow Gov. Larry Hogan’s plan for less partisan political districts (”Maryland Gov. Hogan promises renewed push on redistricting rules,” Jan. 12).

Are they afraid that they might lose the rating that Maryland has as the worst gerrymandered state in the United States? Or are they afraid of the idea that voters should choose their representatives rather than the politicians choosing their voters? Or maybe they are hoping that if they continue to ignore this, it will go away.

I, for one, will campaign against any incumbent who opposes this.
