FW Weekly: City Backpedaling on Promises?

FW Weekly didn’t get its reporting quite right here. It claims the city committed to studying the formation of an independent redistricting commission. That was what the Race & Culture Task Force recommended, and the City Manager endorsed, but the Council pushed back almost immediately. The Council may be backpedaling, but it never made the promise…

“The use of a city-appointed task force was not the system that city leaders committed to in late 2018, though. Two years ago, the mayor and city council agreed to appoint a charter review task force to determine the steps needed to enable a citizen-led redistricting effort.”
