State Sen. Andrew Brock, R-Davie, will be vice-chair of the legislative redistricting committee in the state senate. Brock also represents Rowan County in the legislature and met recently with the chamber of commerce there to discuss the coming General Assembly. While most questions thus far from the public and business interests have obviously focused on the budget, spending and taxes, many are waiting to see how the redistricting plan shapes out. Sen. Phil Berger has stated he wants a new proposal on the table by June.

Brock gave a preview of the potential methodology for drawing new districts:

After the legislators finished speaking, Burt Brinson, federal and state affairs chairman for the Chamber of Commerce, asked them questions submitted by Chamber members.

All three legislators were asked what they envisioned for the 12th Congressional district, but they largely deferred to Brock, who will be vice chair of the redistricting committee.

“We’ll be going around the state to get input from citizens all over, because we want to get as many people involved as possible,” Brock said. “We will make the districts as fair, legal and compact as possible.”
