GERRYMANDERING IS SUBJECT OF MARCH 15 MEETING

Our districts, especially the 7th Congressional District, are known around the country as a notorious examples of extreme partisan gerrymandering. Let's turn this around, end the political control of our voting districts and make our votes count . To find out how, come to an informational meeting hosted by Fair Districts PA and the League of Women Voters of Delaware County Wednesday, March 15, 7 to 8:30 PM in the Community Room of Media Borough Hall Community Center, corner of 3rd and Jackson Streets.
