District containing Reading a great example of gerrymandering.
Thank you for your Feb. 12 editorial, "Division of Berks a fatal flaw in GOP redistricting plan." While the 7th Congressional District has been designated as the Pennsylvania poster child for political gerrymandering, the 16th district Is even more guilty of robbing voters of their rights. There is no reason for Reading to be singled out for inclusion into Lancaster County's district except to negate the votes of Reading residents. Berks County needs one representative, not four and not two.
