Many watchers-of-politics were concerned Minnesota could lose a congressional seat after the results of the 2010 census were evaluated. This hasn't proven to be the case. There's still eight districts in Minnesota. But a map unveiled describing re-districting borders based on the census will impact Chisago County's congressional status, and could place us in a new district.

Congressman Chip Cravaack's response to the proposed re-districting map was quickly released by his press staff. Rep. Cravaack, who resides in Lindstrom, would no longer be a resident of the 8th under the proposal. The new "8th" district would begin at Pine County, and cut across the entire northern third of the state. (See map) Cravaack's home-- and all of Chisago County-- could end up in the new 7th district.

Rep. Cravaack stated, "It is an honor to serve as the eighth district's representative to Washington. I want to assure the citizens, families and businesses of the eighth district that I remain committed to fighting for them in our nation's capitol. My goal as always, is to provide a top notch constituent services program.

"I remain focused on tackling the critical issues...as we work together to create a brighter future for the next generation."
