Op/Ed: Public Redistricting Meeting Closed to Public in Prince George's County
The Maryland Open Meeting Laws states that when the House Delegation Members meet to conduct public business, those meetings are to be publicized and open to the public. (http://sunshinereview.org/index.php/Maryland_Public_Information_Act
Delegation Chair, Melony Griffith, decided to hold this meeting as a "closed door meeting." This is a clear violation of the laws that they are elected to uphold. It is my understanding that the topic of redistricting is an ineligible criteria for executive session meetings. All of the Governor's redistricting advisory committee meetings were open to the public and had transcripts produced to demonstrate a legal history of the meetings and work products. If I am incorrect and this meeting was legal then I find it to be clearly unethical. Read in Full >>
Governor's Redistricting Advisory Committee Recommends Maryland Legislative Redistricting Plan
GRAC began its work based on the current legislative district map, drawn by the Maryland Court of Appeals in 2002. The Committee was guided by State and federal Constitutional and legal provisions, and has produced a product that enhances minority voting rights, pays exceptional attention to respecting natural and political boundaries, and results in districts that are compact, contiguous, and protect communities.
The GRAC map has 12 districts that are majority African American - an increase from the 10 districts that the Court of Appeals drew in 2002. This reflects the growth in African American population in the State, and provides a much stronger voice for the African American community. These districts are 10, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 40, 41, 43, 44, 45, 47.

The Glover Report: African Americans’ Understanding of Our Latino American Brethren
Bottom line: Where do black folks get off talking trash about the Latinos, particularly when their road has not been easy? I hear black people say silly stuff like the Mexicans are taking all of the jobs. Nothing could be more ludicrous. Truth be told, many black folks will not work the jobs our grandparents worked. Truth be told, many black folks are not willing to start at the bottom and work their way up – in the same fashion as our elders and ancestors. Truth be told, many black people think they are too good to work a housekeeping or other “lowly” job – especially when many of us don’t even have a high school diploma. Go figure!
