Redistricting Proposed

From The Maryland Reporter:
     The editorial board of the Washington Post urges the state legislature to change the way it redistricts. writing that for the first time in years, Maryland has a real opportunity to shed its grotesquely gerrymandered electoral districts, for both Congress and the state legislature, and replace them with maps drawn by an independent commission whose purpose would be to elevate the interests of voters over those of insider politicians. Incumbent Democrats, who rule the roost in the status quo, are threatening to block just such a change, in the form of a constitutional amendment proposed Tuesday by Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican. They would be foolish to do so.

    If you are not familiar with the the shape and location of  our district 33,  you should look it up.
