Redistricting to be topic of Tarpon meeting
State Rep. Peter Nehr (R-Tarpon Springs) will host a redistricting meeting from 4 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Tarpon Springs City Hall, 324 E Pine St. Attendees will have the opportunity to comment on how they feel electoral districts should be drawn for the next 10-year period. The redistricting process uses Census data to redraw the lines and boundaries of electoral districts to ensure they are substantially equal in population. This process affects districts at all levels of government, from local school boards and city councils to state legislatures and the U.S. House of Representatives. Contact Sharon E. Nehring, chief legislative aide, at (727) 943-4880 with any questions. For more information, go to www.floridaredistricting.org or www.myfloridahouse.gov.
