Rep. Brad Sherman Criticizes Redistricting Commission

'It’s not a fair fight,' said Sherman. 'I’ve been representing the west San Fernando Valley since 1997.'

Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman is on the stump.

He hosted a Town Hall meeting at the Neighborhood Council in Valley Village this past week as part of his campaign for the new 30th Congressional District seat. The California Citizens Redistricting Commission last month drew new district lines pitting him against Democratic Rep. Howard Berman in what the Washington Post has called the "Clash of the Titans." The new district includes Chatsworth.

Sherman is also holding a public Town Hall meeting at Reseda High School, 18230 Kittridge St., at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28.

While Sherman and Berman battle it out to retain their jobs, all of us in the Valley will be fighting to keep our jobs homes families Medicare benefits Social Security Veterans benefits businesses and our futures. The Valley has never seen such high unemployment foreclosures loss of manufacturing and loss of real-estate values. The Valley once had three Veterans facilities and now, it has one, the Sepulveda Veterans Hospital. Most Valley residents are not aware that its existence is in jeopardy. Sherman has given his blessing to the giveaway of 14+ acres to a private developer. The remaining acres could suffer the same fate. Where are our veterans going to go to get their medical services? Sherman and Berman will use smoke and mirrors to distract you from their voting records. While we pay record prices for gas and food, Sherman and Berman both voted down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, voted to add 2.8 trillion to our Federal deficit, and voted down the Homeland Security budget. Both of them view immigration as a “dog and pony show.” I wonder who the dog is and who the pony is.

The Valley is suffering from 17 % + unemployment, home foreclosures and a record loss of businesses. We are all unsure of where our futures are going. Sherman and Berman will wage a multimillion-dollar war to keep their jobs. Who is really paying for this war? This coming election is a two for one - one election, and we can get rid of two of the Valleys’ biggest “tax and spenders,” who are ignoring the needs of their constituents and who are concentrating instead on their own political careers. We need a change and we need it now! Our country was not built by unions, labor, management, Republicans or Democrats. It was built by Americans and the mutual respect we have had for each other’s talents, which have been offered in the building of the greatest nation in the history of the world. The free marketplace has given us the tools to wage a war on poverty for over two hundred years. Every day we fail to acknowledge this, we work to undermine the freedoms we enjoy. I ran against the policies of Sherman last year and I am running again in the West San Fernando Valley. If Berman runs in this district, we can get rid of both of them in one election.

Together, we can restore the San Fernando Valley and our Country. God bless you and God bless America, Mark Reed

It wont matter if we elect Sherman, Berman or Reed. None of these people have any decent solutions to any problem we face. Vince Gilmore is the only candidate with solutions. www.vincegilmore2012.com
