Q. Is it possible to construct a scenario for redistricting Greensboro that smells worse than the Mary Rakestraw proposal to benefit Mary Rakestraw?
A. In theory, yes. You could create a district that includes only Mary Rakestraw, her husband, Frank, and Bill Burckley.
Q. Didn't the councilmember responsible for redistricting, Zach Matheny, say no redistricting was necessary?
Q. So Council voted for a plan deemed unnecessary by its appointed expert on the topic, who did not even show up to the meeting?
Q. Was there any meaningful dialogue with the public?
Bill Knight: "Your time is up."
Voice from the audience: "Yours is too."
