From the Chair
County Commission Republicans Engaged in Radical Partisan Gerrymandering
By Alex Piland, DPSC Chair
There is so much happening, I hardly know where to begin. Most egregiously, the Republican majority Sandoval County Commission got it wrong— again!
Many turned out for the presentation of the racistly drafted Sandoval County Commission redistricting maps wherein the Native American communities in our county are shoved into one district. This results in a weak plurality of less than 44 percent and diminishes the voice of Native communities in our county. For shame!
The Sandoval County Commission is using our taxes to pay an ousted Republican Senator from Hagerman, Rod Adair. Adair was once touted as being a cosponsor of “legislation to eliminate partisan political redistricting and create a bi-partisan redistricting commission.”
Hmmmm. It appears that bipartisanship is only applicable when the Republicans are in the minority.
Go to Sandovaldemocrats.org for information regarding our efforts to stop this outrageous action of the Republicans on the Sandoval County Commission.
What’s more, Adair’s social media opposition to supporting Indigenous People’s Day tells us all who he is, what he is, and grossly depicts his personal politics.
Contact the Republican members of the Commission via telephone and email here https://www.sandovalcountynm.gov/commission/. Let them know that you support
equitable districting in our county.
Also, turn out for the Sandoval County Commission meeting on December 9 to give public comment on the vote for these poorly constructed redistricting maps. And attend Vice Chair Isaac Chavez’s presentation on December 7 for a more in-depth explanation.
