Please DONATE NOW to support our efforts in 2021 to keep Single Member Districts, which passed in 2018 with overwhelming support of people of all political parties to benefit the PEOPLE! We changed from at-large to single member districts for electing County Commissioners so people of all political parties could elect candidates not beholden to the power-brokers in control of this county.
So far the Commissioners have tried and failed to undermine this historic achievement by tasking the Charter Review Board to “review” single member districts, to get them to place a repeal amendment on the ballot in November, 2022, but on October 20th, 2021--thanks to much public protest--the Charter Review Board sent this task back to them to do their own dirty work. However the Commissioners could still call a Special Election before then or put a repeal amendment themselves on the ballot in November, 2022 to overturn single member districts, so they and their friends can stay in power.
Now they are gearing up to redistrict the county in 2021, as they did in 2019, this time to gerrymander the districts to keep Christian Ziegler in power in District 2, just as they rigged the districts in 2019 to keep Mike Moran in power in District 1. Although they are paying a consultant to create maps--and using our taxpayer dollars to do so!--they again surreptitiously are favoring a map created by the lawyer of the same indicted felon Bob Waechter, who created the 2019 gerrymandered map under a false name.
Is this the way our County should be run?? NO!
The voters should choose their Commissioner, not the Commissioners choose their voters.
Don’t be fooled by the messaging of the Commissioners and their power brokers. Keep YOUR power to elect YOUR Commissioner in YOUR district without letting 80% of voters in other parts of the county choose your Commissioner for you. Keep single member districts!
Contribute online or by check now, so we can fight this continued takeover of our county.
