Group Seeks Changes in Congressional Redistricting

The goal of the Fair Districts PA organization is to make congressional redistricting less political.

Fair Districts PA Chair, Carol Kuniholm, was a guest on WNPV’s Comment Please By Univest on Thursday.

“Look at Montgomery County. The county, by numbers, should have one congressman and spill over a little into a neighboring county. Instead you have five congressmen and none of them are representing Montgomery County because you’re just a small proportion of each of those congressional districts.”

Kuniholm is pushing legislation that would create an 11-member commission that would draw boundaries for congressional districts and state legislative seats.
