Demand redistricting reform now -- Betty Havlik
Redistricting is so easy and so important. Each and every one of us citizens deserves to be represented equally on every level -- whether at the local or state level or in Congress.
Please join me in demanding that every candidate that I vote for from now on will commit to proper redistricting and make that commitment in writing.
All we need to do is adopt the Iowa model, which designs maps that are compact, contiguous and as nearly as equal in population as possible (as required by federal law).
Just think of all the money saved by not having to pay lawyers to draw a map that may or may not be accepted by the courts. This is the bedrock of our democracy. Let us make it happen, now.
Betty Havlik, Hillsboro
