Redistricting Takes Shape

redistrict

Wyoming is going through the process of redistricting in efforts to make the state’s districts numerically even.  To that end, the state’s 23 county clerks met last week to help put together a plan to be taken to the Wyoming Legislature in February.  Representative Keith Gingery explains that after a census, states are mandated to balance the districts according to population.  Currently, Gingery says, each district is made up of about 8500 people.  In addition to numbers, Gingery says the redistricting attempts to group the populations that have similar interests as the primary focus. Gingery says the districts drawn by the state’s county clerks look very acceptable and are supported by all the Teton County’s elected.  The currently proposed plan removes Dubois and East and North Jackson from Representative Gingery’s district.  At the same time, Representative Ruth Ann Petroff’s district becomes the corporate boundaries of the Town of Jackson; and while Representative Jim Roscoe loses Pinedale from his district he retains Boundarant in Sublette County and gains Bedford, Turnerville, Etna, and Star Valley Ranches in Lincoln County.  The new boundary between Representative Gingery’s district and Representative Roscoe’s district will be Highway 22 on the west side of the Snake River and Representative Roscoe will have Hog Island and Hoback Junction in his district.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
