That’s Worth 50K? Really It’s More Money That Could Be Spent on Public Education


Allowing Tom Hofeller to redraw legislative maps for our gerrymandered state is like letting an arsonist loose in a drought-ridden forest and giving him matches to play with.

Take a read : http://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/politics-columns-blogs/under-the-dome/article166115407.html.

Fifty thousand dollars is above the salary of a highly qualified veteran public school teacher who raises student achievement consistently in a poverty-stricken district and never complains.

Hofeller gets that much for redrawing legislative maps in a matter of days that he will intentionally use to create more gerrymandered districts.

But it should not be a surprise as those who want to keep the maps gerrymandered will pay good money to do so.

The state could just save the money. I would actually take fifty cents and do it myself and the result would be more fair.
