This is a mini-series on gerrymandering in Wisconsin. In three brief episodes, I will interview experts to learn more about gerrymandering history, its ramifications, and what citizens can do to end it.
In this episode, we learn about what residents and voters in Wisconsin can do to help fight gerrymandering. I speak with Penny Bernard-Schaber, a former legislator from Wisconsin's 57th Assembly District, and Carlene Bechen, the Organizing Director for the Fair Maps Coalition.
In this episode, we learn about how policies at the county- and state-level are affected by gerrymandering and legislative decisions. We’ll also dive into the statewide electoral concerns that arise in gerrymandered legislative voting districts. I talk with Jerry Iverson, a supervisor on the Outagamie County Board of Supervisors, and Jeff Nooyen, Chair of the Supervisor Board.
