Join host Hank Thompson as he talks with his panel of guests about ward reduction, redistricting, and how to go about avoiding conflicts of interest and unfavorable political actions.
Today’s guests are Kathleen Farrell, city unit leader of the League of Women Voters of Metro Saint Louis; LaShanna Lewis of the group Show Me Integrity, which was responsible for the development of Proposition R; and political consultant Tim Person.
The panel discusses the potential dissatisfaction that would result from the drawing of districts without regarding the nuances of each community as they currently stand in their wards. Will white judges be conscious of the skepticism around their ability to tactfully handle the future of African American politics?
