Just days before the General Assembly convenes in a rare special session to determine congressional districts for the next decade, Maryland Matters hosts a virtual conversation exploring this contentious and consequential process.
The timing couldn’t be better!
“Between the Lines: A Conversation on Redistricting,” begins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 1. It’s a chance for you to participate in an essential look at this pivotal moment in Maryland politics — and a chance for you to support our nonprofit newsroom.
We hope you can join us as we examine the politics of the special session — and of the regular session starting in January, when lawmakers will vote on plans for legislative districts.
We’ve gathered three experts who can helping us make sense of this rawest form of politics. Our distinguished speakers are:
- Joseph C. Bryce, a lobbyist with the Annapolis firm Manis & Canning Associates, who has worked for former Governors Martin O’Malley (D) and Parris Glendening (D) and for the late Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D).
- James Brochin, the co-chair of Hogan’s group Fair Maps Maryland, a Democrat who represented Baltimore County in the Maryland Senate for four terms.
- Nathan L. Gonzales, the editor and publisher of Inside Elections, which provides nonpartisan political analysis of state and national campaigns. He is also an elections analyst for CQ Roll Call.
If you find Maryland Matters essential reading, please keep one thing in mind: we are an independent, nonprofit newsroom. We depend on readers like you to make ends meet.
Through Dec. 31, your contribution to Maryland Matters will be doubled, thanks to a generous matching grant.
Tickets start at $150. And remember, your contribution to our nonprofit is tax-deductible.
Redistricting happens every 10 years. An event like this happens just once!
Please join us for a dynamic discussion and a great way to support Maryland Matters’ reporting.
Hope to see you Dec. 1!
