Thursday, October 20 The New Hampshire Constitution requires that every ten years, “the legislature shall make an apportionment of representatives according to the last general census of the inhabitants of the state taken by authority of the United States or of this
state”. The legislature is currently involved in this task of redrawing the district lines for the: US Congress, State Representatives, State Senators, Executive Council, and County Commissioners. As part of that process, the Special Committee on Redistricting will hold a series of public hearings to solicit input from all interested parties. For the convenience of the public, a hearing is scheduled in each of the state’s ten counties. The public hearing for the Rockingham County will be held
on October 20 at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Auditorium, Rockingham County Nursing Home, 117 North Road, Brentwood, NH, 03833. Please note that the committee has not yet drawn any plans and no proposals will be made by the committee at these hearings. These preliminary meetings will be focused on gathering information from the public regarding any interest or concerns they have relative to redistricting. If you cannot attend the meetings, written testimony may be submitted by mail to: Representative David Bates, Special Committee on Redistricting, Room 308, Legislative Office Building, Concord, NH 03301.
