Watch Bridge’s Lunch Break discussion on Michigan redistricting process
Bridge Lunch Break is back!
The latest discussion in our monthly Lunch Break series focused on where political redistricting stands in Michigan. If you missed it Thursday, don’t worry. We recorded the conversation.
Bridge Michigan Capitol reporter Sergio Martínez-Beltrán was joined by Mariana Martinez, director of civic engagement initiatives for the Michigan Nonprofit Association and Edward Woods III, communications and outreach director for the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission, for an hour-long discussion about the process of drawing legislative lines. For the first time this year, it’s being led by a bipartisan citizen panel rather than politicians.
