MDGOP Preempt O'Malley Redistricting Steering Committee with Better Plan

As you probably know, every 10 years, following the Decennial Census, new district maps are drawn to reflect the changes in population. The Governor has finally appointed his Redistricting Committee and soon they will release a new Congressional District Map (to be voted on during a Special Session of the State Legislature). In case you missed it, the MDGOP released its “Good Government” Redistricting Map a little over a week ago. You can see it (and what the current Congressional Districts look like) at www.fairlinesmd.org

This map reflects what is best for Maryland residents, not career politicians.  MDGOP’s new map draws districts based on the 2010 census and the new lines respect municipal and county boundaries, therefore protecting communities of interests instead of furthering the interests of any political party.

If you happen to read the Washington Post, there was an excellent piece in the Local Opinion section of Sunday’s Washington Post by Professor Eberly from St. Mary's College that  gives great credibility to our MDGOP plan and does exactly what we are working to achieve: to create public support for a "good government" map. Click here to read the full article.

The Governor’s Redistricting Committee has also scheduled the first three pubic hearings. Click here to see the dates, times, and locations. I encourage you to write Letters to the Editor and to attend the hearings, write to the Governor and the Committee members, and let them know that you’re tired of the gerrymandering and want a fair redistricting! As Professer Eberly states, “The Republicans’ proposal isn’t perfect, but it is the standard by which the coming O’Malley map should be judged.”

Alex X. Mooney is the Chairman of the Maryland Party. Reach him here.

" But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States. "

-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 32, 3 January 1788)

Please consider contributing, if only a couple of bucks, the cost of countering the liberal media is arduous and costly.
