Work looks to have paid off for county

Our Views

 While nothing is final until the bill is approved and signed by the governor, it appears the hard work of local residents will pay off in the latest redistricting of legislative boundaries.

The Unite Bullitt County, an effort sponsored by the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce and led by committee members Monica Robinson, Keith Griffee and David Strange, plus a whole lot of work by party leaders, including Scott Wantland, work paid off.

It appears that Bullitt County’s representation in the state House will go from four members to two districts primarily within our boundaries.

The Senate configuration will put Bullitt with another county and maybe part of a second.

No one has questioned the work done by the existing legislators, no matter where they live. All would agree that the closer to Bullitt County, the better.

Once the maps are agreed upon, it will be time for Bullitt Countians to go to work. In past races they have had opportunities (and votes) to elect local officials. At times, they have failed.

We are pleased with the initial reports and hope that Bullitt Countians will do their work at the polls in May and November.
