Who better to provide us information on Redistricting than Pamela Goodman, President of LWV of Florida who has been on the “front line” of the historic redistricting efforts in Florida. She has chaired the Fair Districts campaign statewide for the League, and while in that position, she coordinated all League work during the campaign to secure the passage of the two Fair Districts constitutional amendments. Ms Goodman continues to work with all litigation regarding this issue. (Get .pdf copy of flyer here for printing and sharing.)
