Myrna Perez talked from New York City about the upcoming legislative redistricting process in the 50 states. She talked about the Brennan Center for Justice’s work in the area and their booklet A Citizen’s Guide to Redistricting, which explains the importance of redistricting and its impact on elections. She also reacted to a video clip of Charlie Cook, publisher and editor of Cook Political Report, while he was a guest on the “Washington Journal” Friday, February 25, 2011. He pointed out that following very successful 2010 elections, Republicans were in the strongest position on redistricting than at any time in modern history, but this is also the first time a Democratic president and Justice Department were in place during redistricting since the Kennedy administration. Ms. Perez called for transparency in redistricting and explained Civil Rights Act minority district issues. She responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
