Boundaries for Colorado’s 35 state Senate and 65 state House districts are being redrawn this year, and former state Rep. Rob Witwer will be holding one of the pencils.
Witwer, an Evergreen native who served in the state House from 2005 to 2009, was appointed last week by House Speaker Frank McNulty to the 11-member commission.
Redistricting of state legislative boundaries takes place every decade, following the U.S. Census. Districts are drawn to reflect population changes, with each district ideally having about the same number of residents.
