  1. The sinister reapportionment plan to eliminate her district leader position is just the most recent of conspiracies that Lucretia Regina-Potter has uncovered. Actually, no. She’s just a nutjob.

  2. Dear Sinister World:

    Thank you for acknowledging, in not so kind words, my
    effort to prevent an unjust and unfair reapportionment of my district. I would
    like to submit to your attention that District Leaders, like any other concerned
    citizen, have the right to express their opinions on matters that affect their
    communities. I may be the only District Leader so far in opposing this
    egregious redistricting, however, this does not make it any less important than
    if such a protest would come from any elected public official. Does that make
    all that have protested the reapportionments of their districts “nutjobs” as

    Lucretia Regina-Potter
    Republican District Leader 49AD
