Senator Knopp Encourages Participation in Virtual Redistricting Public Hearings
BEND, OR - Senator Knopp (R – Bend) encourages his constituents to participate in virtual public hearings regarding redistricting; the process that redraws the lines of legislative and congressional districts based upon census data collected every ten years. Appointed to the Senate Committee for Redistricting as the Vice-Chair, Senator Knopp is committed to a non-partisan legislative process of drawing Constitutional Legislative and Congressional districts that represent our local communities.
"This is one of the most important opportunities to participate in when it comes to our Constitutional Republic. There will be two virtual public hearings coming up that will give people the ability to advocate for districts that represent our community and to help ensure that the districts are drawn with an open and transparent process," stated Senator Knopp.
The Senate and House Communities on Redistricting created a website which features a translation tool for Oregonians to read the information in many languages. You can also find a flyer for public distribution here. If you are unsure which district you reside in, you can determine that through this link. The hearings will take place on March 10, 2021 from 5:30 PM until 7:30 PM and March 20 from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM for residents of Deschutes County.
You can sign to testify by visiting the Senate Redistricting Website following the links to the dates of March 10 and March 20. There you can find the instructions on submitting written as well as oral testimony.
