Hassell: CdA now ‘almost mathematically perfect’ for a legislative district

Longtime Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Al Hassell told Idaho's bipartisan citizen redistricting commission that according to the latest census, Coeur d'Alene's population is now 44,137 - almost exactly the perfect legislative district population size of 44,788. “This makes your work quite easy, I think, keeping Coeur d'Alene whole in redistricting,” he told the commission. “It is not only sensible, but almost mathematically perfect.” Ten years ago, when the population was less, the city was divided into three districts, he said. He presented a letter signed by the entire City Council and mayor requesting that Coeur d'Alene be kept whole in a single district.
