Official North Shore Chamber Position: Sixth Essex Congressional Redistricting - The North Shore Chamber of Commerce rates this as a top issue for 2011 and will work to ensure that the Sixth Essex District remains intact. As a result of the 2010 census Massachusetts will lose one seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In Massachusetts the legislature has jurisdiction over all redistricting. The district is home to several defense manufacturers dependent on federal budget expenditures including General Electric, Raytheon, Textron Defense along with numerous subcontractors.
The Sixth Congressional District has been an Essex County seat since the Civil War. It has a natural border with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and New Hampshire to the north. Over the next few months the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Redistricting is holding hearings across the state to discuss how the ten Congressional Districts will be configured down to nine.
The redistricting committee will solicit testimony at a minimum of 12 hearings throughout the commonwealth. The committee will also host a website to provide redistricting information to the public, publicize the hearing and meeting schedule, and provide a means to contact the committee to submit questions, comments or materials.
It is vital to the North Shore as a Region to have a voice in Washington to promote the economic strengths of the region and protect the voting rights of every North Shore citizen.
