NEW BRUNSWICK - Democrats, Republicans and independents are gathering this week at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick to work on redrawing the state's legislative districts. Divided into rooms according to their parties, politicians are working on plans to convince the 11th and tie-breaking member of the redistricting commission, Rutgers University Professor Alan Rosenthal, to adopt their party's plan. Redistricting is the process by which states, cities and towns are divided into legislative voting districts. It happens once every 10 years, and political experts say it's one of the most-important processes in state government because it can help determine who controls the Legislature. Redistricting is based on the results of the U.S. Census. Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) traveled to New Brunswick over the weekend to push for what he believes is a fair interpretation of the redistricting map.
