Gerrymandering Grassroots Fight

This prediction is starting. Good news!

Predictions 5-13-17  In the congressional districts there is a big push in the nation to end Gerrymandering.

The Facts: LANSING, Michigan—Katie Fahey walks into the Grand Traverse Pie Company, blocks from the state Capitol, wearing a black T-shirt that announces her cause. “Voters should choose their politicians,” it reads, “not the other way around.”

As Fahey steps to the counter to order lunch, the cashier, a twentysomething like her, recognizes the message. Last year, he tells her, he signed the initiative petition circulated by Voters Not Politicians to ban gerrymandering.

“We got almost a half a million people to sign,” enthuses Fahey, who founded the group in 2016 based on her viral Facebook post.

“That’s for the midterms?” asks the cashier’s co-worker.

“Yeah! So, Yes on 2, November 6!” says Fahey. “We just need two million voters. It’s fine! We got this.”

  1. Good to see some more positive things happening that you’ve predicted. We really need to fix gerrymandering if we want to fix US politics so govt will be more responsive to the people.

    Thanks, Eric!
