REDISTRICTING 2001

Public Meetings:
7:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 26
Room 101 Blatt Building
Columbia, SC


In SC there are areas that experienced explosive growth in the last 10 years... Some that shrank.....  Final Census data will be out in August... But Preliminary results are in... 

32,395 is the magic number     +/- about 1% to 1.5% 

SO that means.... 48,000 in Rep. Larry Koon in Lexington.... WAAAYYYY too many.   but up in union and some of the more desolate areas of McCormick and greenwood counties there are population deflation rather than growth....  Lots of districts are somewhere in the middle with enough growth to fit the average growth curve.  

In the lower piedmont... Union down to McCormick, there are some high population growth areas and some low population growth areas. Thus putting the squeeze on counties that met the average and would normally keep their same district lines. 

To the folks in the squeeze it means that the county could literally get split in half.  This is not an option to most folks and for others it means walking into enemy territory politically.

In Union they are short... thus parts of Laurens and Newberry will get moved, this flows down into Saluda, or the place which makes more sense Chapin. 

Edgefield, McCormick and Greenwood in  Anne Parks Dist have fallen short so they may infringe on Saluda county, or go into Aiken county and move some from Aiken into Lexington county.

If you are able to attend the public hearings please do so or call your representative or governor.  The Senate districts are equally confusing.   The information and maps will be at the public meeting. I'll try to get some preliminary information and keep this page updated with the latest information.
