In this week’s edition of What The Community Has To Say, Wayne Parke talks about the Evansville City Council pushing a resolution that would appoint an Independent Redistricting Commission, to change the political boundaries of various political offices. This segment aired on Friday, September 22nd.
On September 11, the Democrat controlled City Council passed a resolution pushed by the League of Women’s Voters, which is also currently controlled by Democrats. The resolution demands the State Legislature appoint an Independent Redistricting Commission, to change the political boundaries of various political offices including the Indiana Congressional Districts, Indiana House Districts and the Indiana Senate Districts.
Why do the Democrats want to change the current political boundaries? The reason is Republicans currently hold the vast majority of these elected offices. By changing the boundaries, the Democrats hope to get more Democrats elected. If Democrats want to win more political offices, they need to run strong candidates that have the skills and the determination to support programs that make Indiana the best it can be.
The voters of Indiana elected the current Legislators. If an officeholder does not do a good job, every 2 or 4 year election cycle, the officeholder can be held accountable and voted out of office. Voters could not hold the people making up the Independent Redistricting Commission accountable because the voters did not elect them.
Instead of accepting responsibility, Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party seem to blame others for their political losses.
Indiana is in good shape and getting better. The Republicans became successful the old fashion way—they earned the respect of the voters by running good candidates, working hard and implementing good programs for the citizens of our great State.
Unfortunately, the City Council was led astray and passed a bad resolution and that took valuable time away from their current very important job of passing a balanced budget.
