Redistricters open on somber note

The Idaho redistricting commission opened on a somber note this morning, as Co-Chairman Allen Andersen fiddled with a colorful hand-held wooden puzzle, saying it's an interesting toy that can come together in a variety of ways. As he toyed with it, he said, “Last night, I was chagrined in realizing that I had been sucker punched. … It appears that my confidence was breached, which caused me some real concern. So I got to spend a lot of time last night seeing if there was a way I can make this work.” Twisting the colored pieces, he said, “It is difficult, especially when trust is a part of the process and that trust is breached. But we still have to move on best way we know how. This can be worked with, different combinations, permutations are made, eventually a design will come out of it that is pleasing. Hopefully that's what we can do today.”
