Democratic Redistricting Commissioner George Moses says he's glad that the next thing up for the commission's consideration this afternoon will be a GOP analysis of the Democratic legislative redistricting plan he proposed last week. “We're ready,” he said. “We want to hear what they have to say, because we want to move this process forward.”
The Democratic plan, L-28, already is raising concerns from some on both sides of the aisle regarding where particular lines are drawn. “We're delighted to have our plan out in front of the public,” Moses said, noting, “There are people all over the state that didn't get what they want.” He said, “We went at it to try to get the best population balance we could get, within the rubric of keeping the counties whole. We're proud of what we did.”
