Let the District Be Unbroken

To be delivered to The Connecticut State House, The Connecticut State Senate, and Governor Dan Malloy

Petition Statement

Keep Bridgeport in the 4th Congressional District. Urge the Reapportionment Commission to preserve historical precedent -- not to carve Bridgeport out and put it with New Haven.
There are currently 2,338 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Connecticut Supreme Court has called for the appointment of a "special master" to resolve the redistricting impasse for U.S. Congressional districts. Republicans want to gerrymander Bridgeport out of the 4th District (currently represented by Jim Himes) and lump it together with New Haven (currently represented by Rosa DeLauro). This politically motivated plan would quarantine southwestern Fairfield County into a non-competitive "safe" Republican district and silence the voices of Democratic and minority voters in cities like Norwalk, Stamford, and Danbury.
