VINEMONT — Alabama House Rep. Ed Henry (R—Hartselle) will host a local town hall meeting Tuesday, July 10, offering residents of Cullman County's northwest corner an introduction to the legislator who'll serve them when the state's new redistricting map takes effect later this year.
Henry, who had predominately served a Morgan County constituency, already represented a small section of northern Cullman County that included the town of South Vinemont and the Battleground area.
Under redistricting, though, he'll also pick up the town of West Point and an area that covers much of its surrounding school district. His district will also take in a small residential area on Lake Catoma's north end, as well as most of Lake George.
"I'm wanting it to be an opportunity to meet with people who will be in my district; to catch up with them on the state of the state, and to answer questions about what we've done in the legislature, and what we hope to do," said Henry.
"It's basically a community-service type of announcement. The biggest thing I hope to talk about will probably be showing and explaining the new district lines to everyone."
The meeting will run from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the scout center in Vinemont.
Henry said he'll kick off the session with a brief presentation before opening the floor to questions.
