Greetings Charter Review Committee Members,

As a concerned Anaheim resident, I am writing to express my strong opposition to considering any plan that would polarize our city by creating geographic council districts. Such single-member council districts would heavily motivate future councilmembers to focus solely on their own specific districts, instead of acting in the best interests of the city as a cohesive whole.

Increasing representation at the council level can best be addressed by adding one or two additional seats, not by insuring that our representatives will be more concerned with garnering perks for their own neighborhoods instead of making the tough decisions and reasonable compromises to insure a prosperous future for all Anaheim residents.

Thank you for your careful consideration of this important matter.
