Gongwer News Service and the multiclient lobbying firm Kelley Cawthorne will host a webinar on where Michigan’s redistricting process stands as the new Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission prepares to draw the state’s political maps for the first time.

The webinar will take place via Zoom from 2 to 3 p.m. Monday, June 21.

“Redistricting Rundown” will feature Gongwer Staff Writer Ben Solis, who is leading Gongwer’s coverage of the redistricting process for the company, and Brian Began, a longtime political operative who was a key player in the 2011 reapportionment process, as panelists. Gongwer Executive Editor and Publisher Zach Gorchow will moderate the discussion.

This will be the first in a series of webinars Gongwer and Kelley Cawthorne will co-host on redistricting in Michigan as the process continues. Kelley Cawthorne’s clients include the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.
