The issue: Legislative districts
Our view: Hardin County got it right
Legislative boundaries are redrawn every 10 years to reflect population shifts detected by the latest U.S. Census. The constitutional requirement assures balanced representation.
It also creates periodic political infighting because some districts are enlarged and others shrink to obtain a balanced number of constituents. It should be noted, however, that Hardin County completed the process in record time without any public bickering.
