What A Joke
There was no reconsideration of redistricting tonight, and things only got worse when it came to naming the districts. Leesburg, Catoctin, and Blue Ridge all stay the same, even though Blue Ridge stretches all the way to Brambleton. Lori Waters made a motion to name it Brambleton Ridge, which of course went nowhere. Sterling is still Sterling, but the former Sugarland Run/Potomac district north of Rt. 7 is now Algonkian, named for the park there. The red blob district created to try to save McGimsey is now the Broad Run district, while they actually named the district to the west of that Ashdowne, a hokey combination of Ashburn and Lansdowne.
Worst of all was the pandering of the Dems in naming what by any stretch should be called Dulles district the Dean district after a Loudoun slave. This was proposed by the Dem candidate for that district, Larry Roeder, so he can tout this in his electioneering. LTM article here. This is a political fiasco of the worst kind. They should be ashamed of themselves for this monstrosity. Politics at its worst.
