Redistricting creates two open House districts
The state House redistricting map is out. Some obvious winners and losers are in Hartford, Windsor and Milford.
The map creates two open seats: One that straddles the Hartford-Windsor line; the other is in Milford.
One reasonable interpretation: Rep. Marie Kirkley-Bey, D-Hartford, whose district now shifts sharply toward Windsor, is about to retire. The same is true of Rep. Richard Roy, D-Milford, who finds himself in the same district with Rep. Paul Davis.
The new districts are good news for Windsor. For the first time since 1981, the Hartford suburb will dominate a House district.
More to come.
