Three important items for your review:
FIRST: Thursday was a milestone in our decades-long fight for Fair Districts work and we wanted to make sure that you, who help us achieve the impossible, were fully up to date!
In a nutshell, a unanimous Florida Supreme Court issued a decision overturning a Republican political consultant’s effort to hide documents relating to the shadow process of drawing districts from the public view.
This is a big step forward for our case and also a clear message to the Legislature that partisan politics, shadow processes and schemes to hide documents from the public’s view have no place in our government.
