New non-gerrymandered NC legislative maps could eventually lead to substantive fisheries reform after 2020. At least it’ll be a lot more likely than it is now IMO. Thoughts?

It's not that they won't still be gerrymandered, they just can't be so blatantly obvious.

Doubtful. Until the corruption from the Governor’s thru MFC is cleaned up. The majority of the MFC now have financial interests on matters in which they must vote. At least 5 members will likely always vote the pocketbook versus the resource. Ridiculous really.

By statute, 4 of 9 Commissioners must have a financial interest in the resource.

It will require legislative action to change this.

Make sure you know your State representatives and Governors position on fisheries, and then VOTE.

We probably should have some record of voting on conservation/fisheries bills by our legislators somewhere handy posted on the internet.  

That way as we hear pre-election claims by those seeking re-election in the coming year, we can compare to past actions in an objective manner.

By the way there is an election on Tuesday.

Which party would specks vote for if you gerrymandered them together and outside of red drum and flounder districts? Obviously, they would dance with them what brung em, as has been proven by the beautiful women of the great state of Texas. If you took all the pogies in the sounds, and gave them "man on the street" interviews, would they sound just like Earl Butz, but look like Tip O'Neil? What party would they vote for? Would Ronald Reagan vow to fight em by day, but quaff the pints and "wet many a nipperkin" at the same table by night? Enquiring minds want to know!

Sorry Chris! I figured the serious nature of the thread was exhausted and that It was OK to resume with the silliness we know and love in following the comedy club we call NC Fisheries.
