Nance: Drastic Change To House District

The redistricting maps have been drawn by the Appellate Courts and our district has changed drastically.

The 39th District will cover Ray County (with the exclusion of Lawson and Elmira) and include Carroll and Chariton Counties. Each representative district is approximately 38,000 people.

The 38th will include portions of Liberty, Kearney, Excelsior Springs, and Missouri City. T.J. Berry is the present representative that resides in the district.

The 8th is a new district that includes Lawson and Clinton and Caldwell Counties.

The Senatorial District 21 that Senator Stouffer represents will change and Ray County and Clay County will not be in the district. Each senatorial district represents approximately 178,000 people.

Ray County (24,000 census) and Northern Clay County (35,000 census) and nine counties to the North will become the 12th District. It is represented by Senator Brad Lager and even number districts are in the 2014 election cycle. Senator Lager has expressed interest in a statewide office which could lead to a special election for the 12th Senatorial District if he was successful.
