Demand fairness in redistricting
Thursday, September 12, 2019
One Sept. 2, a three judge panel ruled that the legislative maps currently in use in our state are unconstitutional.
The framers of our constitution envisioned that there would be a fair election process where the citizens of this state would choose their representatives free of overtly partisan involvement.
The court has mandated that new lines be drawn under the watchful eye of public scrutiny. Government works best when it works for its citizens.
I encourage all who are committed to open government and fair elections to avail themselves of the opportunity to participate in the process of redrawing the legislative maps by attending the hearings and demanding fairness from those elected to represent us.
