Critics: Legislative redistricting commission falls short on diversity

‘The lack of representation mirrors the lack of Latina representation at the tables that make these decisions’

Supporters of Gov. Phil Murphy are upset with the Democratic Party’s five-member slate for the state’s next legislative redistricting commission: One Black and four whites, including one woman. That has sparked an outcry from progressives, who ask where’s the diversity the governor has said makes New Jersey great?

The commission, which draws legislative district lines, is made up of five Democrats and five Republicans who are appointed by their party chairs. Senior Correspondent David Cruz reports.
