Last week I attend the forum on redistricting reform hosted by Senators Schultz and Cullen. It was excellent! All in attendance supported reform¸ unfortunately the supporters of the status quo were no shows. I look forward to attending future events, thanks, Common Cause. John Dietz, Rock Springs, WI

Typically, Wisconsin Eye videotapes our forums, but as of now, they are unsure if they will have someone available tomorrow night. We will, however, post some video highlights of the event on our YouTube channel here.
