The League of Women Voters of Door County is taking on the issue of redistricting and gerrymandering. In the league's annual meeting on May 16th event, Dr. David Canon will be presenting on redistricting in Wisconsin. Dr. Canon is a professor of political science at UW-Madison and his talk will look at an issue that is being discussed on both a state and federal level, with the Supreme Court taking on a case involving partisan gerrymandering that involves Wisconsin as well as other states. The annual meeting is the start of the new year for the league. Shirley Senarighi, PR Representative for the LWVDC, says this event will start the celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the existence of the league itself.
The event will also include a dinner and is open to the public. Anyone is welcome to attend either the whole event or come just for Dr. Canon’s talk. Those interested in attending the dinner should contact Barb Graul to reserve their seat by calling 920-743-6842 or emailing email@example.com
