ISSUE: Reapportioning magisterial districts OUR VIEW: Goal is increased, balanced representation

By Chris Ordway

Last November residents made it very clear that increased representation is what they want when it comes to the structure of Fiscal Court. By a margin of almost 2-to-1, residents voted to return county government to its prior format of eight magistrates and a judge-executive. The current commissioner structure was chosen in 2004, when voters approved it at the polls by a narrow gap of 1,467 votes. The spread of 11,183 ballots cast during the last election in support of the magistrate format provided a strong mandate by voters.
