SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Rep. Mary Mascher, D-Iowa City, announced Wednesday she will move to House District 86 in order to avoid competing with Rep. Dave Jacoby, D-Coralville.

Mascher, who said she will only move about four or five blocks away from her current residence, said she is familiar with the area she hopes to serve — she was the area's representative in the late 1990s.

Gov. Terry Branstad signed a new Congressional and legislative redistricting plan into law on Tuesday.

"We worked out what we thought was a reasonable compromise that allows us both to serve the voters," said Mascher about Jacoby, a longtime friend.
