Despite GOP claims, public input did not favor redrawing 5th District πŸ’₯πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ’₯

The Republican proposal to carve up Oklahoma County among urban and rural congressional districts has drawn fire from some residents who say a diverse but cohesive area would be splintered and its political voice diluted.

β€œThere is no one that can convince me that people in rural Western Oklahoma have similar concerns and votes as the urban core of OKC,” one woman wrote in an email last week to the state Legislature.

An Oklahoma City resident who said she would be among those shifted from the district that includes most of the city into the district covering most of western Oklahoma, told lawmakers, β€œThe concerns and priorities in my neighborhood are very different than those of folks in small towns and rural areas. I am reaching out to voice my opposition to the proposed redistricting.”
