HARRISBURGPennsylvania House State Government Committee Chairman Seth Grove (R-York) wrote a letter to Legislative Reapportionment Commission Chairman Mark Nordenberg today suggesting that he follow the most transparent congressional redistricting process in Pennsylvania history, which was led by the House State Government Committee, and have the commission hold a hearing with the chairman’s map drawer, Dr. Jonathan Cervas, in order to fully and publicly examine the preliminary maps. According to Grove, having Dr. Cervas testify about the decisions that went into the creation of the map is called for given the new era of openness and transparency in Pennsylvania’s redistricting process, which his committee followed by having citizen map-maker Amanda Holt testify about the map she drew that was the basis for the preliminary congressional map being considered by the General Assembly.
