Press Conference about Gerrymandering Planned

10 Feb 2018 12:54 PM | Tammy Fagley (Administrator)

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

1:00 p.m.

Capitol Annex Room 125



The League has prepared a report on redistricting to highlight concerns about redistricting in the state. Experiences with gerrymandering in Wisconsin, Maryland and North Carolina resulting in lawsuits, as well as the 2012 court challenge in Kentucky requiring a special session to corrective action, are cause for concern about future efforts in the Commonwealth. Members of the redistricting committee and board including president Wanda Lynch and author of the report, Susan Perkins Weston, will release the report and discuss goals for improving the process in the Commonwealth.
