Redistricting Public Hearing Tonight

Meeting at the Nashua Library, one of a series of regional hearings.

Hillsborough County’s at 7 p.m. in the Theatre Room of the Nashua Public Library.

The public hearings are a chance for residents to submit their input on redistricting of the House, the Executive Council, the County Commissioner Districts, and the two congressional districts.

According to the New Hampshire Constitution, lines for districts for state and federal office holders must be redrawn every 10 years based upon the results of the Census.

There will be similar hearings held in each county in the state.

“As we go through this process, we feel it is important to get public input to solicit any thoughts and concerns of the citizens of the state about redistricting,” said Paul Mirski, chairman of the House Special Committee on Redistricting.

Written or verbal testimony to the committee will be accepted and the meetings will be recorded for future record of testimony.

“The goal of these meetings is to get a clear understanding of how our citizens feel they should be represented. We want to know if certain communities or individuals have specific concerns or thoughts about districts and their views on how they should be formed.”
