Chop up the city

Councilor Isaac Benton’s district was annihilated after February’s redistricting. The region he represents includes the University area, Downtown and Barelas. With the new plan, those will be split up and tacked onto other districts, while the Westside gains a Council seat.

The vote for this plan happened, as usual, along party lines. Democrat councilors oppose it, saying minority representation in the city will be diluted.

So Benton’s come up with another plan. Why not increase the number of districts? The issue should be considered by the Council on Aug. 6 when meetings resume after summer break.
