I vote for ALWAYS pitting two incumbants against each other, thereby insuring some of the trash gets thrown out on a regular basis.
I vote for the computer program, it is the only fair way. The way it's done now it Balkanizes the legislature and it leads to a lot of unnecessary partisan uncompromising politics along with entrenched partisan politicians
I read they have a computer program that minimizes the perimeter of a district - no more weird looking districts like these district for example.....
If the computer program makes a gerrymandered district people would know right away that it was tampered with - I think it would be a great improvement.
And the Todd Hunter ads have started. Just saw the first one.
I love you man. The most fair and honest way to resolve this is to adopted the Cailfornian way of redistricting. A citizens board with an equal number of Dems, GOP, and Inds.
"When federal judge's redo the lines pitting two long term politicians against each other the Republicans call it "politics".
I believe Mrs. Morrison is calling it "unfair"!
As to the 'blessing', I say 'Amen'!
Good post,Dale I never though of it that way...:-)
Computer software is Ok but who controls the programmers?The exception will come up now and then,10 years is a long time.
Which word should it really be? When the Democrats redraw the district lines in their favor, it is called gerrymandering. When the Republicans redraw the district lines in their favor it is called "the will of the people". When federal judge's redo the lines pitting two long term politicians against each other the Republicans call it "politics".
The re-done lines now place Mr Hunter against Mrs Morrison. May I offer another word.... "Blessing"?
