What a Week: Time to think redistricting

Original post made on Feb 20, 2021

Should be a straightforward process, right? Not so much. Arduous is more like it. And that's just the literal process of creating mathematically fair district maps -- let alone factoring in community boundaries and avoiding politics.

Another great page 3 column - thank you Jeremy Walsh! I am so appreciative you could thoughtfully outline and inform us of the process and considerations related to redistricting, without lazily representing all as a death match between Democrats and Republicans. Modeling, expecting, and verifying our hopefully better instincts and shared beliefs as a community is so much more valuable than creating division - and I do mean creating. Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing the tone and flow of the Pleasanton Weekly back toward the trajectory Jeb Bing had established. I was thinking about cancelling my subscription for a time last year based on frustration I was having with partisan and frankly immature opinion being featured. I am so pleased with the new direction that I ensured my renewal today. I am once again looking forward to receiving the Weekly on Fridays, and opening to page 3 with interest, rather than cringing trepidation about what anti-political party rhetoric I was going to find. Interesting not to see an Opinion section this issue... that might be a great thing too going forward! Thank you Jeremy!
