Redistricting maneuver was a blow to our trust

Redistricting maneuver was a blow to our trust

Whoa. What is going on here?

Are we paying our General Assembly representatives to go to Richmond to make their political parties stronger? Not me. I want some pink slips to be given out; I want my money back.

That redistricting maneuver last Monday was a huge blow to "trust." As voters, we elect and pay our representatives to think and work on education, transportation, Medicaid expansion, etc., but we find their minds are on rehashing a 2011 redistricting plan as a political party grab. Unfortunately, my closing thought is: What's next?
