Redistricting in North Carolina from the Hickory Daily Record

A few days ago the Hickory Daily Record  CLICKHERE has a post titled "Redistricting Should Reflect Public Will". It is great to see other newspapers all over this state post articles on this important issue to citizens all over this great state of North Carolina.

In the post this was said:

"It’s not time for revenge; it’s time to realistically reshape the state.

If at all possible, counties should not be broken up into a hodge-podge of districts.

North Carolina is subdivided by counties. Legislative districts should reflect those divisions. Fashioning piecemeal districts to promote one party’s candidate has long been criticized by Republicans.

The GOP majority cannot forget that."

Could not have said it better myself. We will see what happens in the next few months and if the republican party will have a open process on redistricting but it is time to have reasonable districts that adhere to some geographic or county line provisions .
