A waste of work

Students, when given guidelines, are held accountable for assignments.

Accountability, the ultimate buzzword of the state Legislature doesn’t apply to lawmakers. “We the people,” collectively directed them, gave them guidelines and repeatedly they got it wrong when it came to redistricting.

This time we find ourselves paying a real price, in actual dollars.

The $11.5 million in wasted funds doesn’t even include the cost of time used in 2012 to get it wrong the first time.

Destroying work in the middle of ongoing legal challenges seems like obstruction to me.

The House decided to go home early, without Senate agreement. Were they docked for those days?

It becomes clearer each day that we need more than new maps; we need new people drawing them.
