Redistricting Roundtable

The purpose of the roundtable is to provide an opportunity for the public to testify before the official start of the redistricting process, as well as for the Subcommittee to share with the public the expected timeline for redistricting in the District of Columbia. Every ten years, the District uses the data from the decennial Census to reapportion the wards and Advisory Neighborhood Commissions. This cycle, the Census Bureau is not expected to release the data necessary for redistricting until August or September of 2021. Under existing District law, the Council has 90 days after receiving the Census data to reapportion the eight wards, so that each has approximately the same population. Once the new ward boundaries have been approved, the Council will reapportion the Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, likely in 2022.

Great job pushing ahead with the reckless driver legislation but I’m curious whether the Transportation Committee will considers whether to change the sanction. 3 or more tickets for going 25 mph OVER the speed limit in the city is really wild. 5 or more red light tickets IN A SINGLE YEAR, too. Drivers like that should lose their license—not just their car—until they take reckless driving classes.
At-Large Councilmember Elissa Silverman: 30,000 VOTES will.be removed from the DCBOEE Voter Roles .... Pages 465 - 536 are Ward 8 voters with 57 names per page. Potentially 4,047 voters would be purged. As a Ward 8 resident and also a "When We All Vote" Voter Registration Representative I am very concerned about this purging of the voter roles. How widespread was the notice to residents that they would be purged. In Ward 8 we have had several.large scale Housing Developments to close and its residents relocated how are they able to be notified. There is also.a senior population in Ward 8 that may be affected. This purging occurs on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 and many of our residents don't know anything about this purge. Respectfully Submitted Wendy Glenn Ward 8 Resident [email protected] ********************************* A few weeks ago, the DC District of Columbia Board of Elections published names of more than 30,000 District voters who will be removed from the voter registry on Oct. 15 (TOMORROW) if they don't confirm their voting eligibility by the close of business. After this time, these individuals will need to re-register to participate. This is very concerning for us. While we support the Board's efforts to maintain the integrity and accuracy of the District's voter rolls, the Ward 8 Democrats is disappointed in what appears to be a very aggressive timeline to purge voters without more public notice and due process. We urge the Board to reconsider this timeline. The board should extend this deadline by at least 60 days and seek outreach support from District and ward-level organizations like ours, who work directly with voters.

Elissa, thank you for your support of the Fare Evasion Decriminalization Act and please recommit to supporting the bill without changes.
Congratulations 🎉🍾🎈!!!!
I was going to vote for Ms. Silverman until my mailbox was inundated with junk mail from her campaign. For someone who purports to care about the environment, this is a bad example of talking the talk without walking the walk. Lost my vote.
You look like a pe*****le AND SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED AROUND CHILDREN!
Anita Bonds Councilmember At-LargeRobert White At Large Councilmember Yvette M. AlexanderKenyan R. McDuffie Chairman Phil Mendelson Roving Leaders was a task force in the early 2000's it had DC employees that kept the violence from spilling over in other wards and neighborhoods. This senseless killing especially the 10 year old little girl who died this week should get us ALL angry enough to get retired workers like Mr. Theohus Brooks and other Roving leaders, and MPD retired officers, etc.., willing to stop this violence. I'm a District resident in ward 4 and I'm tired of watching the news seeing innocent people shoot by gun violence. Why re-invent the wheel! Funding a 3-5 year grant program to get this senseless violence under control is needed and Mr. Brooks can help with consulting with the city to see what is needed. People needs to know our politicians care, other than election year. Please hold a hearing for residents to testify about the outrage and offer some solutions. I'm going to push and move forward with getting other Councilmembers, Mayor, Attorney General Karl A. Racine, media and stakeholders to the table to make a change, people are angry. Frustrated constitute!
