Records can be expunged in Shelby County now, but it costs a lot--about $400. Does this bill address that, and why a seven-year wait?
Apparently Doris DeBerry-Bradshaw is the sister of State Representative John DeBerry, who received a very large contribution in his last campaign from Stand for Children, an organization that has Kenya Bradshaw as executive director. Is Doris married or otherwise related to her, or is this just a weird coincidence?
Just a note--the appeal of Chancellor Goldin's decision to dismiss the August 2010 lawsuit was also dismissed by the Appeals court some weeks ago. Myra Stiles
I also disagreed with Steve Mulroy's vote on Planned Parenthood, but on other issues he has been a staunch defender of Democratic party principles. Unfortunately, he is term-limited and can't run again. I very much support his plan for redistricting the commission into single districts. I don't see how anyone can argue against it on grounds of representation. The other plans are simply, as others have noted, incumbent protection plans. The smaller the district, the more interaction that commissioner can have with his or her constituents.
