Event Description

The following is from Lynne St. Angelo (Tucson) who has been following this closely.  She says that the public comment time should start around 7:00pm, so if you cannot attend during the day, try and come in the evening as soon as possible.  Also, it is said they are going to reveal maps at this event, so if you are interested in what they are doing, you will want to come during the day.

 

All,

More and more consultants continue to be hired by the Redistricting Commission and most of these were included in the bids by the other companies that responded to the RFP for this job. Strategic Telemetry, however, said they needed no subcontractors and so all of the consultants are being hired in addition to the amount being paid to Strategic Telemetry.  Hired so far: Maptitude (are supposed to have this up for mappers to use this week), Catalyst Secure for document cataloging and retrieval, Harvard Professor to do racially polarized voting analysis and competitive analysis, DOJ Attorney, and a Defense Attorney. In addition, Strategic Telemetry said that to include the voting data from 2004 and 2006 would cost more money (this does not even address 2002 the first year after the last redistricting).

How could all relevant data not have been included in the cost of their contract? We have actual expenses for one month, July of $260,351.37 versus budgeted of $213,892. So the month of July was already overbudget without these new people coming on board and without extra expenses for more public meetings (which are also not included in the contract) and the 2004, 2006 data.
