Hopkinton Fast Fact: D3 and FL Look Alike
Hopkinton's congressional district is shaped like our southernmost state.
The Third U.S. Congressional District, which includes Hopkinton, is shaped like Florida.
The last hearing by the Special Joint Legislative Committee on Redistricting, for which Ashland's Karen Spilka, whose district includes Hopkinton, is a Senate member, is Monday, July 11, at 3 p.m. in the Gardener Auditorium in the State House.
The committee is charged with redrawing the state's U.S. Congress, state representative and senate districts to conform to the 2010 U.S. Census.
Because Massachusetts' population grew slowly compared to other states, it will have one less congressional district.
