2022 dawns with the debut of the fun new game “Who’s your elected official?”
Last week Michigan made history with the first ever congressional, State House and State Senate district maps drawn by citizens through the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (MICRC). These maps definitely hold some changes for Leelanau voters – read on to learn more.
From where we sit, the changes to Michigan’s Senate map is a very good thing as it groups Leelanau with other coastal counties including Antrim, Charlevoix & Emmet. This should yield a state Senator much more responsive to our issues, particularly since neither candidate will be an incumbent.
On the House side, it’s a little less clear. While we’ll potentially have the same representation (Rep. O’Malley), the district will be dominated in terms of population and agenda by voters in Traverse City.
Dig into all the changes & the final maps through the MICRC.
