The fight over how many voting districts there ought to be in Trumbull is not over, according to court documents filed Monday.
Regina Haley and John Kingston, representing the group Trumbull Citizens for 7 Districts, have filed a motion to reargue their case that was dismissed Sept. 21. The group seeks a referendum to vote on whether the 21-member Town Council should be divided among seven districts or the current four. The group had collected 2,800 signatures to force a referendum on the matter, but took the issue to court after Town Council Chairman Carl Massaro, after consulting with the town attorneys, declined to place the motion on the council’s September agenda. Judge Barbara Bellis dismissed the case, ruling that state statutes gave the exclusive right of apportioning voting districts to the Town Council.
