Ward Awaits Redistricting

State Representative John Ward of Brainerd says expect a lot of announcements once the new political boundaries have been drawn.  Legislative and congressional lines are redrawn following the 10 year census.

A panel established by the Chief Justice of the MN Supreme Court will issue the new boundaries this afternoon.  The court action became necessary because the Governor and Republican led legislature could not agree on what the new lines should be.

Among those making an announcement will be Representative Ward.  He tells KLKS News, he will be running for office again, he just not sure where.  Ward expects to lose parts his district to the north while expanding to the east and south.

Representative Ward says the Mississippi North Woods Project is making headway at the capitol.  The project is a parcel of land owned by Potlatch on the Mississippi River near the Brainerd Regional airport.

Approval would prevent commercial development of the land and would result in county control of the parcel for outdoor activities.
