Senator McCrory Appointed to Serve on Reapportionment Committee

Today, State Senator Doug McCrory (D-Hartford) was appointed by Senate President Pro Tempore Martin Looney (D-New Haven) to serve on the bipartisan Reapportionment Committee charged with the responsibility of redrawing Connecticut’s legislative and congressional districts. Sen. McCrory joins Sen. Mary Daugherty Abrams (D-Meriden) as one of Sen. Looney’s two designees.

“I am humbled to be afforded this responsibility by Sen. Looney. I look forward to getting to work on making sure the residents of our state have their voices represented in the Connecticut General Assembly,” said Sen. McCrory.

“The redistricting process is an indispensable part of ensuring the legislature represents the voices of the people of Connecticut,” said Sen. Looney. “I am pleased to name Senator McCrory to this committee. He is an outstanding public servant and trust his dedication to upholding the principal of one person, one vote.”

The eight-person committee is an integral component of a multi-month process outlined by the Connecticut Constitution. Committee members, chosen by the four top legislative leaders and appointed by the governor, will use data from the 2020 Census in redrawing district lines. The committee is expected to prepare and submit a districting plan to the Connecticut General Assembly for their approval.

The redrawing of districts to ensure that everyone’s vote has equal importance is part of a process that takes place in each state of the nation.
