OBTP members and concerned Dare County citizens rally for redistricting

Outer Banks Tea Party held a rally at the Dare Govt compound yesterday.  About 15 people gathered on the steps of the Dare Govt Center in Manteo to support redistricting Dare County.  We all filed in to the Commissioners’ meeting room afterward and took our turn at the podium.  Several people spoke during the public comment period, urging the commissioners to appoint a bi-partisan commission to study the issue and recommend a redistricting plan.  All of the commissioners were attentive and a couple seemed to be nodding in agreement.  Reporters from all the major newspapers (Outer Banks Voice, Coastland Times and Virginian Pilot) were on hand to snap pictures and interview us.

Below is video from inside the Commissioners’ meeting room where several citizens spoke in favor of redistricting.
