State Senator Chris Telfer is hard at work on redrawing her District map. The 2010 Census reveals that her District has grown tremendously over the past 10 years and guidelines indicate the Districts need to be redrawn to even out the representation. "My District, mostly Deschutes County, is the largest District in the state now at 172,000 people. We need to pare it down to 128,000 people. They will be spinning off, so to speak, some of my constituents to either Senator Whitsett, who lives in Klamath falls, Senator Ferrioili who lives in John Day, Senator Floyd Prozanski, who lives in Eugene. So I’m very concerned about my constituents who are used too having you know, local representation." Telfer says she is the Vice-Chair of the Redistricting Committee. She says they will hold a series of community meetings in the areas that will be affected, to get the public's input on the changes. Telfer says they need to have a new map ready for approval by the end of June.
