Ex-Gov. Allen makes the case for bipartisan redistricting

February 06, 2019

Former Virginia Gov. George Allen spoke about his experiences with gerrymandering and the importance of bipartisan redistricting at a standing-room-only town hall on Saturday.

The Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Albemarle County was one of five stops Allen is making with OneVirginia2021, a redistricting advocacy lobby, to educate Virginia residents about gerrymandering and urge for support of SJ 306. The resolution, which recently passed through the state Senate, seeks to amend the Virginia Constitution and create a bipartisan panel to draw districts.
