Redistricting & Gerrymandering

I think it's essential to establish an independent restricting committee to draw Congressional and Legislative boundaries rather than allowing self-interested office holders of any party to handle the job. And this is backed up by a recent court ruling.

Now is a great opportunity to talk about another crucial issue: The ability to work with members of any party on issues of mutual concern, to come together where we can, and to compromise to work toward our goals. Politics is not a football game to be won or lost. Yes, politics is goal-driven and requires strength and endurance. But politics also requires statesmanship and courtesy.
