New County Commission District Map Shared

KSAL StaffDecember 2, 2014

Saline County Commissioners shared a power point presentation of the newly drawn commission districts at their formal meeting Tuesday morning.

Back in November voters approved increasing the size of the county commission from three to five members. The current commission redrew the commission district map, expanding it from three to five districts. The new map is divided based on population.

Governor Sam Brownback will appoint two new commissioners before the end of the month.

Current commissioner Randy Duncan, who lost in the primary election in the 1st District to Monte Shadwick, instead now resides in one of the newly formed districts, District 5. Duncan, who received less than 21 percent of the vote in the primary, previously publicly expressed interest in being appointed by the governor to again be a commissioner. Democrat Stephanie Cool, who lost in the general election to Shadwick, also resides in the newly formed 5th district and is also eligible to be appointed by the governor. Shadwick still resides in the 1st district, and will take office in January.

Anyone interested in being appointed as a commissioner from the two new districts should express interest directly to the governor’s office.
