Houston City Council Map Could Change After 2020 Census

 

Quote

At Wednesday’s council meeting, District E Councilmember Dave Martin said the city should consider redrawing city council district boundaries, particularly in his own district. District E includes two far-flung suburbs, Kingwood and Clear Lake. Martin said it’s a “ridiculously arranged council district” where it is difficult to coordinate meetings.

Now that's going to be intriguing. 

 

It is. I'm always on the side of closer representation than further out. That would be the good news. The bad news is that would be one extra representative for suburbia. Not so good. In order to ensure a balance of power between the inner city and suburbia, I would propose splitting district C in two. The Heights and Montrose are fundamentally different districts anyway. They would then get someone closer to their concerns while it also adds an inner city seat to match the new one in the suburbs.

Big question is whether Houston City Council will get expanded since the population has been growing non-stop in recent years.
