Subject: Political Packing
Hello, members of the districting committee, and districting master,
My name is Dylan Richardson, and I live in precinct 181. I testified at the districting committee’s public hearing on April 13th regarding political packing. This topic has been brought up several times, and I would like to further comment, especially to the Districting Master, Dr. Ypma, in the event that any amendments are submitted to him with this as a justification.
