There is a bit of political relief for Durham voters.
On Friday, a special master tasked with reshaping Connecticut's congressional district submitted a plan that would pull all of Durham into the 3rd Congressional District, now respresented by Democrat Rosa DeLauro.
Currently, Durham is split between the 3rd and 2nd district, which is represented by Democrat Joe Courtney. (The boundary runs along a line in the western edge of town)
The court has until Feb. 15 to approve a plan.
Still, earlier this week, Laura Francis said no matter what the outcome of the congressional redistricting, the damage had been done.
Late last year the legislature’s Reapportionment Commission split Durham among the House’s 86th and 101st districts and the Senate’s 34th and 12th districts.
The splits are likely to have both for the town, Francis said last month.
