City Councilor Liz Breadon (Allston/Brighton) holds a hearing starting at 3 p.m. on Thursday on how to go about carving up the city into nine equitable district seats based on the 2020 census.
Breadon took over responsibility for redistricting efforts after Council President Ed Flynn bounced Councilor Ricardo Arroyo over those sexual-assault allegations, which seem to have disappeared now that he lost the primary for DA. Her committee is supposed to come up with a map showing the boundaries of the city's nine district seats.
Breadon says she does not have a map in mind, because she first wants to hear "community priorities, values, and guidelines" before sitting down to draw the new lines for approval by the council - which in addition to nine district councilors also has four councilors elected at large.
But Arroyo - and Councilor Tania Fernandes Anderson (Roxbury) - do have a map.
