Concerned residents join "Gerry Meander"

Dozens of people walked through an Evansville neighborhood Monday evening to call for redistricting reform. WNIN’s John Gibson went along…

The 2.1 mile “Gerry Meander” followed a portion of the line between state representative districts 77 and 78.

On a map, it looks like a thumb – or peninsula -- sticking into another district.

Organizer Kathy Solecki told WNIN it’s time for gerrymeandering to stop.

(The districts should not be drawn to enhance a political party or candidate. They should be drawn to fairly represent the composition of the voters.)
