The Arlington Committee of 100 will host a program on a proposed state constitutional amendment to reduce the impact of partisanship on redistricting at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at Marymount University.
General Assembly members earlier this year passed a constitutional amendment on the subject, but with Democrats having won majorities in both houses of the legislature, advocates are now fearful legislators in the 2020 session will not send the measure to the public for a vote.
The panel’s participants will include Brian Cannon, executive director of OneVirginia 2021, which advocates for nonpartisan redistricting, and Del. Mark Levine (D-45th), who has expressed concerns about the measure.
The event begins with a meet-and-greet at 7 p.m., with optional dinner at 7:30 p.m. and the program at 8 p.m. There is no charge to attend the meeting; to purchase dinner, reservations must be made no later than Sunday, Dec. 8.
