Joe Busby, who labors hard and effectively for the Fair Park Neighborhood Association, shares his note to members about a meeting at City Hall today with City Manager Bruce Moore and others about the latest ward reapportionment, which splits the neighborhood between two wards. Why does Fair Park get the shaft? He says he got no answers.

City Hall is caving to pressure by Ward 1 Director Erma Hendrix and the Capitol View neighborhood, which didn’t want to see Ward 1 expand into their neighborhood, currently in Ward 3, as the first reapportionment map proposed. Some lines have also been drawn to accommodate Ward 2 Director Ken Richardson.
