(Denver) – State Rep. Matt Jones, who served on the state reapportionment commission, saluted today’s decision by the state Supreme Court approving reapportionment maps redrawing the boundaries of the state’s House and Senate districts.
“We fully complied with the court’s mandate for maps that respect county and city boundaries,” Rep. Jones (D-Louisville) said. “We worked for seven months, first to comply with the state constitutional requirements and then to maximize the number of competitive seats. Now we have 35 of them, which will give more Coloradans the opportunity to make real choices.
“I’m happy this process is complete, and we know where our district boundaries are and will be for the next decade. Now we can turn our attention to our top priority — serving the people of Colorado in the upcoming legislative session.”
