SEIU backs Florida fair district proposals for 2010
TALLAHASSEE, Florida: In the latest financial reports of two proposed 2010 ballot measures - Florida Congressional District Boundaries Amendment and Florida Legislative District Boundaries Amendment - the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) appears as the largest contributor. According to state campaign finance records SEIU has contributed a total of $225,000 to Fair Districts Florida, a group advocating for both district proposals. "Our goal is really just to establish some fairness standards when the Legislature begins drawing congressional and legislative boundaries. If you look at the state of Florida, there are some crazy districts out there," said Mark McCullough, a spokesman for SEIU.
In order to place the measure on the ballot supporters must gather 676,811 signatures for each ballot measure.
