GNOR PAC Issues Recommendations for Redistricting
GNOR PAC respectfully makes the following recommendations regarding redistricting:
State Representative Districts
Owing to the influx of voters to Orleans Parish, a new house seat should be created in the Mid-City neighborhood drawing land/precincts from Districts 94, 97, 91 and 93. This would centralize the vital Bio Medical corridor under one state representative and presumably increase minority representation for Orleans Parish. In a related measure, we urge the expansion of District 98 into the Garden District precincts of District 91 to better organize neighborhoods under one representative.
State Senate Districts
Add the Lakefront neighborhoods of Lakeview, Lake Vista, Lakeshore, Lakewood North & South, Country Club Gardens and Lake Terrace into Senate District 9. Population growth in Orleans could be distributed by positive adjustments to Senate Districts 5, 4 and 3 . This will also organize neighborhoods into more linear districts instead of the current 'hopscotching' pattern that we currently have in Orleans.
Generally, the Lakefront neighborhoods of Lakeview, Lake Vista, and Lake Terrace should be included in the same districts because they constitute a community of interest with similar economic, cultural, and historic suburban characteristics.
