Yeah, I see nothing wrong with this. What if I'm raised or live in a district for years and know the problems that they face very well and have ideas on how to fix them efficiently and equitably for that populous, but am not part of another district because lines were drawn a block away? You're telling me that I'm disqualified from helping my neighbors now? Yeah... I don't buy that. At the end of the day, it's the job of responsible voters to know their representation. I don't think that you have to live in someone's neighborhood to find solutions to their problems. This also means that, in many cases, we are forcing the blind to lead the blind. If you're in a poor and undereducated district, you're likely stuck with poor and undereducated representation. Well that's just bull shit. This is why I generally ask for sources on things, and why disagreements tend to dissipate shortly thereafter. This is the kind of shit you hear on conservative talk radio that's passed off as fact without source or confirmation, and can be passed off as an "opinion piece." It's a perfect example of why the right is trying so hard to discredit journalists and sourced materials.
