Local Leader: Rebecca Womack & Laura Richlin
Philadelphia City council passed a resolution that urges state lawmakers to end Pennsylvania’s extreme gerrymandering by handing over the task of congressional and state legislative redistricting to an independent citizens commission. Philadelphia joins the over 300 other municipalities and counties in Pennsylvania - representing 8.8 million, or 68% of the state’s population - in the adoption of a fair districts resolution.
We invited every city council candidate to complete a short survey asking if they support passing such a resolution in Philadelphia, and why or why not.
