Legislative Boundaries to be Re-Drawn


It happens every ten years, and it's time to do it again; time to re-draw Oregon's legislative boundaries. Bend Senator Chris Telfer is a Vice Chair of the Redistricting Committee, and she has a couple of concerns.   “Certain people in Deschutes County that I have been representing will now be represented by another Senator, that is not as centrally located. Senator Whitsett is in Klamath Falls and Ssenator Ferriolli is in John Day, so it will be interesting.” Another concern she has it that both political parties will try to push the boundaries to favor their agendas.   Telfer says geographic areas of like interests should be a bigger deciding factor. The official numbers will be available in March. New boundaries must be decided by June 30th. The Governor can reject the Legislature's plan and order the Secretary of State to re-draw the boundaries.
