Commission on Redistricting To Meet This Wednesday
For Immediate Release: Monday, August 9, 2021
ROCKVILLE, Md., August 9, 2021—The seventh meeting of the Commission on Redistricting will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, August 11 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and will be livestreamed on the Montgomery County Council’s Facebook page.
The Commission on Redistricting was established after the confirmation of 11 appointed members by the Council on Jan. 26. In the 2020 general election, the Montgomery County Charter was amended by the voters to require the County to be divided into seven Council districts to elect seven district and four at-large members of the Council. The Charter required that the Council appoint a Commission on Redistricting composed of 11 registered voters who reside in the County.
The seventh meeting of the Commission on Redistricting will begin with greetings by Commission Chair Mariana Cordier and will be followed by approval of the meeting minutes. Then, the meeting will continue with the Commissioner’s report on meeting attendance for the Commission’s outreach efforts and a discussion on upcoming meetings.
This will be followed by the Commissioner’s observations on the shared use of the redistricting mapping tool, and a discussion of processes to develop maps generated by Commissioners once the Montgomery County census information is made available. The meeting will end with a discussion of meeting times and dates for the fall.
The members of the Commission on Redistricting are as follows: Imad Aldean Ahmad, Laura Ard, Mariana Cordier, Keshia Desir, Arthur Edmunds, Valerie Ervin, Bruce Goldensohn, Jason Makstein, Nilmini Rubin, Samuel Statland, and David Stein.
Residents can view the meeting on the Council’s Facebook page (@MontgomeryCountyMdCouncil).
