Dear Editor

On the heels of the 2020 Census, the Redistricting Board is taking recommendations on six Proposed Plans to redraw the 40 legislative districts in Alaska. We live in District 36, which includes Ketchikan, Metlakatla and Hydaburg. It is compact, fairly contiguous (considering we live on islands) and we share some of the same concerns and demographics of these communities.

Personally, I am happy with this configuration. I do not want to be lumped in with Sitka.

Alaskans are invited to review the proposed plans, discuss them with the Redistricting Board members and leave public comment. The plans may be viewed and comments submitted on the Alaska Redistricting Board website at

Hope to see you there.
