MAIN STREET REDISTRICTING
Founder & CEO
I offer GIS, planning, communications and innovative outreach services. I incorporate the latest census information, including both geographic and demographic data in all my work. My maps are compatible with Google Maps and Google Earth.
I am proficient with Caliper’s Maptitude for Redistricting, the redistricting software used by most state legislatures in our country.
I am also familiar with Esri Redistricting, which is based on Esri’s ArcGIS software and dataset components. Esri Redistricting provides comprehensive tools for plan creation, management, visualization and collaboration.
Whether your city or county prefers Maptitude or Esri, Main Street can provide customized redistricting solutions.

our REDISTRICTING EXPERIENCE
Main Street Redistricting was hired by the late Congressman John Lewis and U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Johnson I. Since then, we have advised seven different Members of Congress on redistricting in the following states: Maryland, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina and Ohio.
In 2011, Main Street Redistricting handled all of the redistricting efforts for Clark County, Nevada. The seven County Commissioners unanimously (7-0) passed Main Street's map and that map was never challenged in any forum.
In 2021, Clark County rehired Main Street Redistricting and our map again passed unanimously 7-0.
