Redistricting: A tale of two votersProposed Congressional map introduced by Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan and state Sen. John F. Kennedy. Map from Duncan's website
Dunwoody voter Vasu Abhiraman has cast most of his ballots in the 6th Congressional District, a collection of north Atlanta suburbs.
Yet, under a new congressional district map proposed last week by Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan and Ga. Sen. John F. Kennedy, Abhiraman would now be in the 4th District, which would include most of DeKalb County, all of Rockdale County and part of Newtown County.
“I want an explanation for why they would be moving me and my neighbors to the 4th District,” Abhiraman told Atlanta Civic Circle. “They didn’t give us the criteria they used for creating the map. They just gave us the map.”
