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?
