The Subcommittee on Redistricting shared an update in the process of right-sizing our Wards. As a member of the subcommittee, I am pleased to share three, new discussion maps (below) to further facilitate conversation on what could be our future ward boundaries. Read more about the three maps here.
In order to foster productive dialogue on redistricting choices and trade offs, the subcommittee has released three map proposals for community discussion. The three maps were chosen from among the 130 submitted to the subcommittee by DC residents. Each map contains multiple options for rebalancing wards; the subcommittee is looking for input on the multiple decisions made within each map. In other words, the subcommittee’s final proposal will likely include elements from each of the three maps. Each map should not be considered as a whole, but as a combination of options.
This week, I hope you will join us for two, final public hearings to discuss redistricting. Here is information on how to join.
I look forward to hearing public testimony at both upcoming hearings. There is still time to sign up to testify at the Friday hearing. Please do so before the sign up deadline this Wednesday at 5 PM by following this link.
