THURSDAY @ NOON REDISTRICTING CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

THURSDAY @ NOON REDISTRICTING CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

Every ten years, all 50 states redraw their electoral district lines. In Virginia, this important responsibility is entrusted to members of the General Assembly.

In an historic move, the Virginia General Assembly has approved a constitutional amendment that will be on the ballot this November to create a commission to make legislative districts within the Commonwealth.

Brian Cannon, FairMapsVA, will discuss the amendment with the Chamber and what it would mean if approved. If passed by the voters, this would be a significant change in the way legislative districts have been drawn in Virginia. For more information on this issue please visit the website.  

 

Delegate Paul Krizek will discuss concerns on this proposed Amendment. 

 

Brian Cannon is now the executive director of FairMapsVA, the
organization working on the Vote Yes campaign for the redistricting reform
amendment. He brings over a decade of experience in non-profit leadership, community building, fundraising, and bipartisan advocacy for state policy issues.

Previously, Brian worked as a consultant with startups and high-growth
companies.  While in law school, Brian studied election law and was on
one of the winning teams in the 2011 state-wide redistricting competition.  
Brian is a double William and Mary graduate (2011 JD, 2004 BA).  He and
his wife, Kelly, live in Richmond, Virginia with their two children.
