Redistricting; Frederick charter amendment; DC ethics

Today on NewsTalk, our Vote 2012 debate series focused on the Maryland redistricting referendum and Frederick County’s charter government question. The former would invalidate the congressional boundaries the state legislature approved following the 2010 census. The Frederick question would replace Frederick’s Board of Supervisors with an elected Executive and Council. Lawmakers Michael Hough, Kathleen Dumais and David Brinkley were our guests for these segments.

Alex Burns and Christopher Metzler talked about Monday night’s debate.

And in our last segment Robert Spagnoletti, chairman of the DC Board of Ethics and Government Accountability, talked about the panel’s work.
