Redistricting is Being Decided NOW

Our Future Voice In Congress On The Line Right Now!

Jacob Turk has been our man on the scene where the redistricting mess is concerned. Many of the links below go to his campaign site where he has been making periodic blog entries to keep us up-to-date with what has been happening. Thank you, Jacob! I doubt very many of us would know half of what we do about this without you!

The atrocious Congressional redistricting maps proposed by our Republican leadership in Jeff City are now being manipulated in a conference committee to iron out their differences. With no KC area State Representatives and 3 of the 5 State Rep committee members from the St. Louis area, it does not bode well for conservatives in Jackson County. Our only hope is to get your State Senator and State Rep to vote against the splitting of Jackson County between the 5th and 6th Districts which is nothing more than a Cleaver Protection Plan mandated from DC.

Call them now and let them know you will remember their vote on Congressional redistricting come the Republican primaries in 2012. Tell your State Senator and Rep they must vote 'No!' to splitting Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, and Independence to win your support for 2012.

At this point, our best outcome is Missouri Congressional redistricting gets thrown to the Federal courts with no map. It is our only hope for a fair, competitive map for all Missourians.

You must call now! We've received word that they may vote late tonight, 4/21, or early tomorrow!

Here are links giving you background on where we are and how we got here. Remember our Republicans are the ones doing this.
