EC residents rally for redistricting plan

Nov. 21—EAU CLAIRE — Jack Connell of Eau Claire was among 20 area residents who gathered outside the Eau Claire County Courthouse on Tuesday, waving signs urging for fair maps in legislative races.

"We need fair maps. Without fair maps, we can't have fair and honest elections," Connell said. "I'm concerned with the Congressional districts, as well as the state level, in the Senate and the Assembly."
