NC Senator Jeff Jackson: “Two Minute Town Halls”

Last week I (David Bland) had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Jackson, a senator from Mecklenburg County. He is one of the most impressive individuals I have had the pleasure of getting to know. I can guarantee you that you will continue seeing him as a major force in Democratic politics in the years to come. The following video is an excellent synopsis of what gerrymandering really means. I urge you to watch it and get on his mailing list to see his upcoming videos.

 

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?

Best,

 

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.
