Irving proposes district council lines

Greg shows a map of the proposed new district City Council lines in Irving, which as this DMN story notes would likely unseat two current Council members and might have an effect on HD105 next year. I keep following this story for a variety of reasons. One is that it’s a look at a process that we’ll be undergoing ourselves in the near future, and will surely cause a fair amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Two, it seems likely to me that whoever wins the initial election in that Hispanic-majority district is someone who will be a force to be reckoned with, possibly for a long time. And three, it’s fascinating to see all this change in the Dallas area, which seems to me to be a leading indicator for the rest of the state. Put it all together and how can you not watch?
