LUNCHEON LECTURE EXAMINES REDISTRICTING

North Central Michigan College’s March 13 Luncheon Lecture will focus on redistricting following the passage of Proposal 2 last fall.  The lecture will be held in the Library Conference Center on the Petoskey campus. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon.

In November 2018, Michigan voters approved the “Voters Not Politicians” constitutional amendment that makes a commission of 13 randomly selected citizens responsible for drawing district lines for the Michigan Senate, Michigan House of Representatives and U.S. Congress.  Michigan voters can apply to be a member of the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission and help draw the new lines resulting from the 2020 census.  Sally Marsh, director of special projects for Michigan’s Secretary of State, explains it all.

Reservations are required.  Call 231-348-6600 or email luncheonlectures@ncmich.edu to reserve your place at the table.  Cost is $12 (cash or check only – at door) and includes lunch.
