Duncan On Redistricting
Awaiting the word on redistricting, Knoxville Congressman John Duncan Jr. has some ideas of his own
Everyone who follows Tennessee politics has wondered for months what the shape of Tennessee's new Congressional and Legislative districts might look like, and among the chief speculators are those who might be impacted-the legislators and Members of Congress themselves. Congressman John J. Duncan Jr. (R-Knoxville) represents the 2nd Congressional District and he apparently has some opinions about what his district should look like-he needs to lose a few people in order to maintain the principle of "one man, one vote-"so he wrote a letter to Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell (R-Nashville). While saying in that letter that he is not attempting to speak for the entire East Tennessee delegation, he makes says some interesting things about where he thinks the cutting should come from his district and which district should be impacted by it.
