Redistricting for the New YearJanuary 3rd, 2012 by Steven Gardner
I’m working on a story about redistricting, so details are coming. Here are some highlights.
The 35th District runs much farther to the south than before, taking in the rural areas around Olympia and Tumwater, running up next to Lacey’s southern border. Commissioner Tom Huff told the (Tacoma) News Tribune Kathy Haigh would have lost in 2010 if the new boundaries would have been in place.
McCormick Woods goes from the 35th to the 26th District.
Parts of Bremerton near Lions Park will shift from the 35th District to the 23rd.
Those are the big changes.
