Note: The following is an announcement from the office of Rep. Bradley Jones, Jr.
Representative Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) is pleased to announce that according to redistricting maps released earlier this week, he will represent the entire town of Lynnfield in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
Announced by the Special Joint Committee on Redistricting, Representative Jones will assume precinct 2 from its current Representative, Donald Wong (R-Saugus) after the 2012 election. With the addition of precinct 2, Representative Jones will represent all four precincts in the town of Lynnfield.
“I am pleased to represent the entire town of Lynnfield. I have always believed that no matter how many precincts I represent in a given town, I represent the town as a whole”, said Representative Jones. “With the redistricting process approaching its completion, I look forward to working with Representative Wong to ensure a smooth transition for all the residents of precinct 2.”
Representative Wong will continue represent portions of Lynn, Saugus and Wakefield.
“I am confident that the transition to Representative Jones will be seamless for the residents of precinct 2 in Lynnfield,” said Representative Wong. “Even though I will not be representing Lynnfield, I will still advocate for causes relative to the town and its residents.”
Over the next week, Representative Jones encourages residents to visit the redistricting website, to take a look at the proposed maps, and leave any questions, comments, or concerns they may have.
Subsequent to this comment period, the Redistricting Committee plans to reconvene next Tuesday to report the maps to the House and Senate. The proposed maps may reflect recommended changes from the public comment period.
Once the maps are sent to the House and Senate there will be another week for Legislative members to recommend changes or file amendments to the plans. After that, each branch will vote on their respective maps for final approval.
When signed into law, the districts will take effect for the November 2012 elections.
