Redistricting on West Chester's radar

If you're still shaking your head about the 2012 redistricting - a map that splintered communities and drew the ire of the state Supreme Court - a non-partisan forum on April 21 in West Chester  promises a thorough analysis. Speakers will include Amanda Holt, author of the plan praised by the state high court; Sam Stretton, attorney for the West Chester and Phoenixville appeal of the redistricting; and Tim Potts, a political analyst and co-founder of Democracy  Rising Pennsylvania. The event, which will be moderated by  West Chester Mayor Carolyn Comitta and Holly Brown, Borough Council president, will be held at 10 a.m. at  West Chester Borough Hall, 401 E. Gay St. in West Chester.
