Board of Supervisors Adopts 2011 Redistricting Plan


At its April 26 meeting, the Board of Supervisors adopted a redistricting plan that will now be submitted to the U.S. Attorney General for preclearance. Under state law, however, redistricting goes into effect immediately and does not wait for the fall elections.

The plan maintains nine supervisor districts, but it shifts seven voting precincts. The changes for the Braddock District are as follows: Bristow precinct will move into the Mason District, while Eagle View and Monument precincts will move from Springfield into the Braddock District. From the dais, Supervisor Cook expressed his concerns about splitting the Ravensworth Bristow community (comprising the Bristow and Heritage precincts) across two supervisor districts. Since the Board first proposed the plan during its April 12 meeting, Supervisor Cook met with a number of other Supervisors in the hopes that they could develop an alternative that left Bristow in Braddock District. Unfortunately, each proposed change put the population of Braddock and/or Mason outside of accepted norms, so the change could not be avoided. Supervisor Cook will, of course, continue to represent half of that community and to work with our Mason Supervisor, Penny Gross, on Annandale issues.

Everyone in the Braddock Office would like to take this opportunity to welcome the new members of the Braddock District. We look forward to serving the residents of Eagle View and Monument precincts and encourage you to contact the office with your questions and concerns.
