• When you consider the Congressional Districts, the current districts were required by the Constitution to be no bigger than 30,000. The Ratified Congressional Apportionment Amendment from the Bill of Rights (the real first amendment) required that the districts grow in size but lock at 50,000 people to give everyone localized representation. Our districts aren’t constitutional at the moment. Remember, you want to change something in the Constitution, you need an amendment. We’ve never had it other than the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. We’re working to change that and can use all the help we can get. The Democratic Republican Party of NJ has been fighing in court to restore Congress to what it was supposed to be. A local representative body.

      On a practical level, if your argument is correct, the House of Representatives would have 6,000 members. Is that the outcome you desire? Have to move it to RFK stadium. And build another 10 or 12 office buildings.

    While it is true that re-districting is not one of the top priorities of the western world (or even the Maryland world) the current map is a scar on the body politic. Our leaders in Annapolis have asserted that the issue is DOA, so it is even more important that the Commission do a thorough job of analyzing and explaining the issue and not rushing its recommendations to meet the Governor’s artificial deadline.

    No not a waste of time. The treasurer is the biggest waste of money in Annapolis. Whoever defends her must be working for the 2 clowns in charge of both chambers of the General Assembly

    It seems the US Supreme Court does not care about state issues at all. How about where in spite of tough economic times states were forced to cough up millions to pay new lawmakers for new districts by adding more seats in spite of shrinking tax bases.
