Redistricting Update

Dec 30, 2011

Today’s yet another deadline in the ongoing saga of “Connecticut’s Congressional Map.” Lawmakers repeatedly missed deadlines to draw district lines and eventually punted to the state Supreme Court - saying they’re deadlocked over a few details. The Court considered....quickly...then lobbed the ball back into the lawmakers court, telling them to get back to work, and get them a list of nominations for a “special master” to oversee a final decision. That’s due today...then this mystery map maker will help get the final map drawn by Feb. 15th.  Of course there are party politics involved - and it doesn’t help that there’s an open seat in the 2012 elections in the 5th Congressional district.  I know you’ll be surprised that THAT is where the dispute is.
