McGuckin asks Commission to start drawing map in SJ

NEW BRUNSWICK – Toms River Councilman Gregory McGuckin said he wants the Redistricting Commission to begin drawing its congressional map in South Jersey.

He noted the largest growth of New Jersey population in Ocean, Gloucester, Somerset, Atlantic and Middlesex.

“The population is moving to the west and to the south, which is mirroring what’s happening nationally,” said McGuckin, a Republican candidate for the Assembly in the 10th District.

“One thing I’ve learned is it all matters where you start to draw the map,” added the veteran councilman. “I suggest to you that when you begin to draw this map, you begin to draw in South Jersey.”
