Whose Ward is it anyway?
There is an election coming this fall for city council and the ward boundaries have been re-drawn. Some folks have been asking important questions like “what has changed”? I’m pretty sure that the city only had the new boundaries on their website but I just checked and they now have the old and new ward maps on this page.
In an effort to be of service to all inquiring residents, mhbpna.blogspot.com has done the hard work of combining old and new ward boundaries into one image. You can see exactly how things have changed by clicking on this image below for a larger view. On the left are the OLD boundaries with the current councilors and on the right are the NEW boundaries. Please post any of your observations as a comment. What do you thing this means for democracy?
