SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The possibility of Johnson County Board of Supervisors being placed in districts has been raised, Supervisor Rod Sullivan said on Tuesday.

“It’s a move toward parochialism, and frankly, I’m not a supporter,” he said.

Sullivan said that he did not know the stances of the other supervisors. He noted that there has been concern from people in Johnson County that he and Supervisor Janelle Rettig live approximately 12 blocks from each other.

Other counties in Iowa practice districting for their supervisors, including Linn and Washington Counties.
