On Second Thought For Monday, November 5, 2018
Today on the show, we broke down complicated ballot amendment language, explored the history of gerrymandering and discussed domestic violence issues in Georgia.
There are seven ballot measures currently up for vote during Georgia's midterm elections. We spoke with GPB's Stephen Fowler and Zac Peskowitz, assistant professor of political science at Emory University, to learn the history behind these measures and decode their complicated language.
We also spoke with Charles S. Bullock III, professor of political science at University of Georgia, about gerrymandering and drawing district lines in Georgia. Bullock said Georgia's 13th district "looked like a dead cat on the expressway" when first drawn."On Second Thought" for Monday, November 5, 2018
Finally, we heard about domestic violence in Georgia from Shenna Morris, the policy and community engagement director for the Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Lavon Morris-Grant, founding executive director of MACOSH Healing Network, also joined the conversation.
