Not much will change for Mint Hill in congressional redistricting

Myrick's district is shown in green and Kissell's is in purple.Rep. Sue Myrick (Dist. 9) will still represent the Mint Hill area according to the GOP-drawn congressional redistricting maps for North Carolina. However, Myrick’s district will change slightly. Her district, which currently pulls from suburban Mecklenburg County, Union County and Gaston County, will add southern Iredell County and drop Gaston County. The change shouldn’t affect her chances of getting reelected.
Just north of Mint Hill, Rep. Larry Kissell, a Democrat whose congressional district includes parts of 10 counties including Stanly, Union and Carbarrus, will lose a large group of African Americans to Rep. Mel Watt’s 12th district. The result could spell trouble for Kissell. In 2008, 52 percent of District 8 voted for Barack Obama. With the new district, the number falls to 44 percent.

Meetings will be held across the state Thursday to give residents a chance to voice their opinions about the new redistricting map. In the Charlotte area, the meeting will be held at the UNC Charlotte J. Murrey Atkins Library, Room 143, 9201 University City Blvd., Charlotte. The meeting lasts from 3-9 pm.

  4. Kenya and have been around in great numbers except now that they are under threat due to
    human encroachment on their habitats. For while the market may be pumping out what seems like endless noise, if you listen. Ordinary
    chores make you strive for more and it helps one master a way of life.
