The Broward County Commission has approved a new map with new boundaries for the nine Commission districts. There will be one more public hearing before they are made official.
The Commission is required by the County Charter, to redraw the election district map every 10 years to keep the population distribution in each district approximately equal. The difference between the largest and smallest must be no more than 10 percent.
So which district are you in? If you were in District 3, the area I am proud to represent, there were a few boundary changes.
District 3 is now:
Although the City of North Lauderdale is new to District 3, it is not new to me as I represented it during my years as a State Representative. I’m looking forward to representing them again.
No parts of the City of Sunrise are located in the new District 3.
The new district map will be in effect for the upcoming November 2012 general election.
More details about the new map are available.
