Sid Miller Going to Run for Congress? That Goofy New Congressional Map

24 June 2011 at 8:03:55 AM

I was making fun of the new redistricting map the other day that SLICED Erath county in half, called it Gerrymandering fun. In it, I noticed that Erath county was cut in half, with Sid Miller and Stephenville with the rest of the new District 25 and the other half of Erath in a different district, District 11 What I didn't realize is that it cuts STEPHENVILLE in half, apparently right across Tarleton campusand gives STEPHENVILLE 2 different reps!!??!!!!

From the Stephenville Empire-Tribune

"Not only will who we vote for depend upon what county and city we live in, but now it will also depend upon the street," Stephenville Mayor Nancy Hunter said. "Two congressmen serving one city might be common for Houston or Dallas but not so much for a city of just more than 17,000 residents. I have serious concerns whether this is going to be beneficial for the citizens of Stephenville. These new lines put Tarleton State in one district and City Hall in another."

But was the reason for this so that Sid Miller would have this misbegotten district so that he could run for Congress? One man thought so.

Glasgow said the new redistricting lines were clearly drawn to benefit area Republicans and could have been done purposely to set up an opportunity for State Representative Sid Miller to run for congress.

"The legislature should never draw districts for their own benefit," Glasgow said. "Redistricting lines should be made by an impartial committee of citizens."

In the article, Miller says that he is praying about whether he should run for Congress, but I'm willing to bet he's already got the papers all filled out. There's no way that this was not done purposely to benefit Miller. It looks for sure like Miller doesn't even care about his own county that he would be willing to see his own CITY chopped in half. Amazing.

Here's the Planc141 to look at.

Anybody else care to weigh in about what deals you think Miller made to get this? Definitely that explains that appalling Sonogram/abortion bill that treats women like idiots and Miller does not understand and has a lawsuit against it.I've also wondered if Miller has plans, since he's been pushing that Give Money to Private Schools From Public Funds baloney, to either open another school or take his charter school private. (Remember he's always been for lower standards for charter schools.... we don't have to wonder why.)
