Phoenix officials approve new redistricting map

PHOENIX The Phoenix City Council has approved a new redistricting map that would split the city's downtown among two council members.

The Arizona Republic reports that the council voted 6-to-3 Tuesday to approve the map.

A dispute over the map appears to have soured a friendship between Vice Mayor Michael Johnson of the south Phoenix and downtown District 8, and Councilman Michael Nowakowski of the Laveen and west Phoenix District 7.

Under the map, downtown would be split among Nowakowski and Councilman Sal DiCiccio.

Johnson says Nowakowski and DiCiccio had worked behind the scenes to promote the map after the council had already voted to send another map to the U.S. Department of Justice for final approval.
