Jefferson: County redistricting plans jolt two commissioners

County redistricting plans under consideration could undermine the power base of one county commissioner and force a second to move to retain his seat.

Under one of the three redistricting options developed by Deputy County Administrator Gary Rowe, Commissioner Glen Huntingford, R-Chimacum, would lose his power base in Port Ludlow.

Commissioner Richard Wojt, D-Port Townsend, would lose his district under each of three proposals made public late last week.

If Wojt chooses to run for office next year, he would have to move farther from Port Townsend to remain a resident of District No. 3, under the plans proposed.

Dan Titterness, R-Port Townsend, would be the only commissioner whose seat would remain firm under each of the three options.

Commissioners must redistrict the county based on 2000 Census data by Dec. 15.
