  RPA Four Selects District Map to Their Advantage
March 23, 2022

In another classic battle of the RPA Four against the rest of Richmond, they powered through on a 4-3 vote selection of Map 201, deemed by the RPA to provide the best chance of preserving their power structure. Most everyone else in Richmond, including the neighborhood councils, supported Map 102c.

Map 201 is that strange animal (Gerrymander) that combines Point Richmond, North Richmond, Parchester Village and Hilltop into a single voting District and intentionally dilutes the Black vote in the process.
