WITH CENSUS DATA RELEASED, REDISTRICTING BEGINS IN EARNEST


DFL Redistricting Lead Rep. Mary Murphy says Minnesotans expect fair, transparent process

(ST. PAUL) — The US Census Bureau today released early summaries of demographic and population data for Minnesota, allowing the redistricting process to begin in earnest. With census data available, House and Senate Redistricting Committees can begin drawing new district maps.

State Representative Mary Murphy (DFL – Hermantown), the DFL lead member on the Redistricting Committee, said that Minnesotans want a fair and transparent redistricting process.

“The people of Minnesota expect an open and honest redistricting process, and we are committed to ensuring that each Minnesotan receives proper representation in Congress and the state legislature," Rep. Murphy said. “Our goal is to produce a fair plan and map for the entire state through the legislative process.”

Prior to the release of the census data, the House Redistricting Committee held several public hearings to gather input from community members and local officials.

Citizens and community groups are welcome to submit their opinions, ideas, or concerns in writing to either Rep. Murphy at 343 State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55155 or at rep.mary.murphy@house.mn; or Committee Chair Sarah Anderson at 549 State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55155 or at rep.sarah.anderson@house.mn.
