The Door County Fair Maps Task Force brought Wisconsin Democracy Campaign Director Matt Rothschild to Egg Harbor on Wednesday. Rothschild hosted a community forum at the Kress Pavilion to explain what gerrymandering is and why it is a concern. Rothschild says Wisconsin should adopt a less politicized districting process like that found in the state of Iowa.
Rothschild says that it is fundamentally wrong for the popular vote to diverge from representation to the extent that it occurs in Wisconsin. He maintains he believes that to be true regardless of the party that benefits.
