The 7th Congressional District Democrats’ May meeting will feature a a presentation from attorney Mark Brewer on the status of a federal court challenge to state and congressional redistricting plans in Michigan.
A federal judicial panel recently ordered the state Legislature to redraw, by Aug. 1, the boundaries for dozens of state and congressional districts that were determined to be overtly partisan.
Republicans have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the ruling, at least temporarily, since the court is considering redistricting cases in other states that could have a bearing on the outcome in Michigan.
The 7th Congressional District Democrats will meet May 23 at UAW Local 723, 281 Detroit Ave., in Monroe. The Executive Committee will meet at 6 p.m. and the General Membership will meet at 6:30 p.m.
