Chaumiere isn't in the Fourth District, why didn't Jolie drag her ass over to the part of the Northland that IS in her District for the first time and get an earful of the complaints her own constituents have?

The "one-in-five" Fourth District residents north of the River have only had ONE Councilmember representing them for four years, Katherine Shields.

Jolie Justice and her staff have ignored the "Orphans Of The North" constantly. And trust me, there ARE unaddressed problems in that part of the Fourth District that was ILLEGALLY (violation of redistricting rules requiring contiguous connection) grafted onto the Fourth District in order to exclude African Americans from the Fourth (i.e. Hyde Park and Ward Parkway).
