Apply For The MoCo Redistricting Commission (Deadline: October 26)

From Anonymous.

Montgomery County is a one-party county.  The County Executive, County Council, and Senators and Delegates to the General Assembly are all registered Democrats. Not one single Republican or any other party member among them!

Consequently, there is no diversity of thought, the economy and educational system are in trouble, and many people feel disenfranchised.   

Part of the reason for this lopsided picture is the fact that Council and Delegate districts are so gerrymandered in Maryland in general, particularly in Montgomery County. 

There are a couple of ways this can be remedied:

  1. First, by changing the structure of the County Council to nine individual districts (Vote YES to Question D and NO to Question C). 
  2. Second, by ensuring that district lines are drawn fairly, no matter what the Council structure ends up being.  District lines are updated once every 10 years, based on the latest census figures, and will begin in 2021.

October 26th is the deadline for applying to be on the Redistricting Commission, which will start work in February. Below is the county press release which describes the role of the Redistricting Commission and the application procedures.

Don’t just complain about how things are run in the county.  Do something about it.  Apply and help ensure that everyone is represented fairly!
