Rep. Kevin Cameron: looking for Oregonians’ input on state’s next redistricting plan

by Rep. Kevin Cameron

Redistricting

The 2010 Census data released in late February shows that Oregon has grown by 409,675 people since the last census in 2000.

This week Rep. Cameron will begin the first of several public hearings across the state to seek Oregonians’ input on the state’s next redistricting plan.  Rep. Cameron said the hearings will give citizens a unique opportunity to learn about the process and share their concerns as the Legislature redraws legislative and congressional boundaries.

“Every Oregonian deserves an equal voice in Salem and Washington, but not every Oregonian has the opportunity to visit the State Capitol to participate in the process,” Rep. Cameron said. “That’s why the House and Senate Redistricting Committees will travel across the state to listen to Oregonians as we begin this important constitutional duty.”

This Friday Rep. Cameron will travel to a hearing in Tillamook; citizens on the coast will also be able to participate in remote video conference sites in Astoria, Lincoln City and Newport. Next week, he will travel to Eastern Oregon hearings and later hearings in Southern Oregon, Eugene and Corvallis.

    It will be a surprise if redistricting isn’t punted to public employee union owned, secretary of state (SOS) Brown. Hopefully, all this is meaningful. But the Dems can easily punt this thing to their “Johnny Friendly” character (On the Water Front movie), SOS Brown. What is the GOP going to trade to keep this out of Johnny Friendly’s designs? So, the GOP must still play nice unlike Wisconsin where “Matt Dillion” cleaned up things for awhile.

    Whatever you do, simply redistrict to deny the Dems any advantage. Simple as that.

    Another total waste of time. Public hearings are only “CYA” for politicians so they can do whatever the Hell they want while saying they listened to the public. BS Kevin! Just get in there, do YOUR job, and protect our ass!

      I’m sorry… but if he didn’t hold public hearings, then people would be screaming about this. This (along with my unelectibility) is what would keep me from running for office. No matter what you do, people are unhappy with you – and frequently it’s the same people. Hold public hearings and they are unhappy; don’t hold public hearings and they’re unhappy. And then we wonder why they can’t just follow the “will” of the people.

        Ok 3H, hold the public hearing but tell the public that there will be no more giving in to the bastard Democrats. No more! I’d go to that PH to hear that said.
