OLYMPIA — The state Redistricting Commission will hold a public meeting Saturday to hear from residents on potential changes in the boundaries of the 1st Congressional District.
The two-hour meeting will begin at 1 p.m. Details on how to participate can be found online at redistricting.wa.gov/outreach-meetings.
The district stretches from the King County suburb of Kirkland north to the Canadian border. It runs through the towns and farms of eastern Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties. Lake Stevens, Snohomish, Monroe, Granite Falls and Bothell are among the cities in the district. The district now is represented by Democrat Suzan DelBene.
Once a decade, boundaries of congressional and legislative districts are redrawn by the bipartisan commission. As part of the process, commissioners are conducting outreach meetings for each congressional district, encouraging residents to offer input on how the maps should be redrawn.
For more information on this year’s process, go to the commission’s website at redistricting.wa.gov.
