Keeping the Pressure on Fair Maps
Annemarie McClellan, Commissioner on the People’s Maps Commission representing the 3rd Congressional District
 
In his 2020 State of the State Address, Gov. Tony Evers promised to create "a nonpartisan redistricting commission, comprised of the people of our state—not elected officials, not lobbyists, and not political party officials—who will draw The People’s Maps."
 
And as promised, The People's Maps Commission began a series of hearings around the state this October. Annemarie McClellan, a founding member of the League of Women Voters-Greater Chippewa Valley chapter and current co-president, is the 3rd Congressional District Commissioner on the People’s Maps Commission.
 
Annemarie will provide background on the Commission, information about decisions the Commission will make and their methods of learning from the public. She will also discuss the scope of the commission's study and the process for final determination of the new redistricting maps.

Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World
by Fareed Zakaria

"In the form of ten straightforward “lessons,” covering topics from globalization and threat-preparedness to inequality and technological advancement, Zakaria creates a structure for readers to begin thinking beyond the immediate impacts of COVID-19. Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World speaks to past, present, and future, and, while urgent and timely, is sure to become an enduring staple."

Book Club is meeting virtually. The link below will take you to our Events calendar. Click on the Book Club entry for registration on the Event page. A Zoom link will be sent to you in your confirmation email.
 
The next book will be "Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps that Explain Everything About the World"  by Tim Marshall. Book Club will meet on Monday, January 25.

The People's Maps Commission Holds Public Hearings on Redistricting
Members of the People’s Maps Commission have been hosting a series of public hearings across Wisconsin to hear directly from experts and the public on redistricting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission is conducting all hearings virtually, with at least one hearing for each of Wisconsin’s congressional districts. The hearing for our congressional district was held on November 19.
 
Five hearings are still scheduled for other districts in December and January. Written public comments are also welcome at any time during the public hearing process. Recordings of all of the hearings held so far are available for viewing on the commission's website.
