Districting process / charter option

Dear Council Members -
   In planning to work with the Districting Advisory Committee, try to hear from them early and regularly to engage discussions of districting options.
   The process being set up, including the software mapping tools, will work well and lead to a good set of consensus districts as a response to the CVRA. You will enjoy and benefit from this positive civic activity.
   Those discussions can also help you and the public understand MP districting options, including possibilities for a 2018 charter measure. That second discussion needs to start soon as the options are not as clear cut as those possible for the near-term district plan. If a good option is found time is also needed to draft the charter language.
I’m optimistic about the district plan to be created now for the CVRA, but it is unlikely to be the best approach for reinventing our city voting process.
   So please bring these two big decisions together now so we have a chance in November 2018 for a districting charter option, or at least understand why that choice might have to be left for the future.
   John Kadvany / College Ave.
