Redistricting, that age-old problem, is surfacing with the redistricting commission again. I cannot solve it on the federal level, but there is a way to make the state problem a little more simplistic.
There are 39 counties in the state. Let each county have one senator. The current system does nothing but create inequities for the smaller counties.
As for state representatives, allow each county at least one as a minimum. Each representative would be county specific. After the minimum, additional county representation would be based on county population. A method to find the total original number of representatives would be to divide the total state legal population by a number (40,000 or 50,000) used to determine the number of representatives and then apply that formula to the counties.
In this manner all counties are treated equally and equitably. I realize that this approach is probably too logical and sensible. If this would take a state constitutional amendment or an initiative, so be it. This solution would solve the equity problem and all of us would be truly represented.
