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.

    Thank goodness for non-hunting spouses. If it weren’t for our better halves, most of us who hunt would be completely unprepared for fall holidays.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
