The N&R’s Mark Binker reports a bill is making its way through the Senate that would have the state draw commission districts in Guiford County. The news breaks the day before the commission’s public hearing on the map drawn by Chairman Skip Alston, which has generated a fair amount of controversy.
Listen below to hear Sen. Phil Berger tell Binker why the bill was brought up. Imagine this —Berger said he kept getting phone calls from citizens and other Guilford commissioners expressing concern that the map was gerrymandered.
