Urban Thurston County in one district

December 16th, 2011 by Ken

New maps just released from the state redistricting committee has the cities of Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater all in the 22nd Legislative District. The maps also include all of north Thurston County within that district.

In the past, portions of Tumwater and Lacey were in the 20th Legislative District. Now, all areas within the three city boundaries are in the 22nd District.

This move would tend to make the 22nd District more conservative encompassing all of Lacey and Tumwater. But, the 22nd will still be a safe Democratic district.
