Voter Redistricting

Kathy Richardson, State Representative from Noblesville, presented Kiwanis members with a program about redistricting.  She was appointed to the committee by the Speaker of the House.  She was a caucus chairperson and has had experience as a county clerk.  She has been involved in government issues for 30 years.  The redistricting is based on the 2010 census.  Congressional areas can not vary by more than one person.  The new map will take effect 7/1/11.  Then, local districts will have to be rebalanced.  Hancock County will be represented by three members instead of two.  These representatives are Bob Cherry, Brian Bosma and Sean Eberhart.  Senator Gard’s area will change and include Hancock County as well as a small part of Marion and Shelby counties.
