Re "Super PAC already has eye on vital TV ads this fall" (The Buzz, April 21): We know money usually can buy or greatly influence elections in a district.

Let's say you have a fair election for the people in a district trying to vote someone in with the money they raise versus the Super PAC money put into the race. It doesn't matter where the money outside of a district comes from, Democrats or Republicans, it just overrides the will of the people in that district.

The person elected will be obligated to the group that put in most of the money, not the district where all the problems are. It's sad that the parties have become the focal point instead of the districts, which do not get represented with all the crime, fraud and homelessness going on.
