Potter first noted the political doings in the race for State House District 19
which is worth a read just to see what may be the magnum opus of local political verbiage. District 19 covers Downtown, most Hill District neighborhoods, parts of the North Side, Beltzhoover and environs. The interesting thing here is whether or not there is, or will be, any noticable political impact of the new Downtown denizens that everyone keeps talking about. My guess is those new folks are unlikely to vote, but you never know. Adds a wrinkle is all.
I seriously want someone to fund a survey across Pennsylvania to see what percentage of folks know what state house district they are in or who represents them. I bet either is a scary number. So just to help out with that, below is an outline of State House District 19 in Google maps. You should be able to click into Google maps to play with it interactively.
