The District Court employed an incorrect legal standard in determining that race did not predominate in 11 of the 12 districts.
“This is another great victory in the fight against gerrymandering,” said Roanoke Del. Sam Rasoul. “People are demanding government they can trust. When politicians pick their voters instead of the other way around, that’s not what they’re getting.

Sunday, October 16, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Charter Hall in the third story of the Roanoke City Market Building will become the location for the grand opening of The Collective at Roanoke Church founded by Pastor Marshall Frasier and his wife Rebecca Frasier.
The Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Lea and others are attending the grand opening to help celebrate the new ministry said Pastor Marshall in a phone call. All are invited to join the celebrate. Hors d’oeuvre and coffee will be served before and after the service he said.
A fun addition will be Kyle Edgell, a caricature entertainer and humor professional, illustrator and cartoonist. She will be offering free caricature drawings. Mayor Lea will be speaking as well as a guest from the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce.
The church began holding weekly services in August as they worked out some kinks culminating in a negotiated contract to rent Charter Hall. Sunday morning services are contracted through December 2016 including Christmas. The contract may be renewed or another location could be selected.
“We are looking around to see if there is something we can have all week long … I don’t have an office,” said Pastor Marshall. The church needs a place for other activities during the week and renting Charter Hall weekly would be out of the question he said.
“The rent is reasonable compared to everything else around,” he said “except maybe compared to a high school or movie theatre … it’s better than what they would charge for a wedding,” said Pastor Marshall.
The Collective at Roanoke is a church that desires to Inhabit God’s presence, Involve the church body and Influence the world around us for Christ. www.thecarchurch.org
