A Centrist’s POV

Paul Silver of the Moderate Voice mentioned us last week:

California and Arizona are both preparing to vote on redistricting plans aiming to reduce political distortions.

The California version focuses on trying to keep cities and counties contiguous, rather than broken up into obscure gerrymandered shapes. Perhaps these new districts can be made more competitive for candidates by pairing communities with different political inclinations. In order for Gov Schwarzenegger to get support for this from the Democratic leaders he had to agree to allow the term limit laws to be altered to give those leaders an extended stay in power.
