Boston City Council passes redistricting plan

The Boston City Council voted, 11 to 2, Wednesday to ­approve a redistricting map that at the last moment won broad support after 16 months of wrangling fraught with electoral politics and racial undertones.

The map that passed was crafted by Councilor Tito ­Jackson, who amended a proposal from other councilors. It came as a rebuke to Councilor Bill Linehan, the chairman of the Redistricting Committee, who had lobbied against ­Jackson’s amendments.
