Redistricting: A Hot-Button Issue

Aug 31, 2011

We don’t care how often it’s used—hot buttons never get old. That’s why they’re hot buttons. One particularly hot-button issue is redistricting. Like many states, California has a history of gerrymandering, the results of which can be seen in a deeply polarized legislature. The League of Women Voters, Pasadena Branch, is hosting a panel on the issue with a few experts, to provide some background and illuminate what may happen in the wake of the last election cycle’s big vote. The panelists are Kathy Feng, executive director of Common Cause; Dr. Lori Glasgow, assistant chief deputy for LA County’s Supervisor, Mike Antonovich; and Tara Schultz, director of administrative services in Alhambra. All will bring a different perspective on the processes and obstacles on actually getting districts redistricted. The program is free and requires no reservation. If you want lunch, an RSVP and $25 is required.
