100 Words from Jeff
At 9:30 a.m. tomorrow morning I’m posting a video on social media, but I want to give you the first look.
We’re starting a series called “Two Minute Town Halls” that give short, fact-intensive summaries about specific issues affecting our state in a way that is (hopefully) easy and enjoyable to watch.
The first one is on gerrymandering (of course…).
How’d we do? And what should our next topic be?
Here’s Our Video
Big News on Gerrymandering
Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that North Carolina’s 2011 congressional map was unlawfully racially gerrymandered. The effect of the ruling is to uphold the new congressional districts that were drawn last year as a result of a similar ruling by a lower court, so this won’t produce new districts. However, it’s a positive sign for the direction the court is headed on gerrymandering. We’re still waiting to hear from them about if/when our General Assembly will get new districts.
