POLL: Should Keating represent Cape Cod and the Islands?
A new redistricting plan changed the lay of the land for the South Coast and Cape, but who should be representing us?
As reported yesterday, Representative William Keating will make Bourne his new home as sweeping changes to congressional districts aim to provide a stronger voice to minority communities and adjust for a slowly growing population.
"After talking with my wife Tevis and our children, Kristen and Patrick, I have decided to run in the new 9th Congressional District where we've owned a home for 17 years," Keating said in a statement.
There has been some talk of his decision to move to Bourne as a way to avoid a race for a contested seat in the Boston Metro.
Do you think he should run for the Cape/South Coast seat? Do you like the new redistricting plans? Do you think they make things more fair?
