A meet and greet for U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, Washington’s 9th Congressional District representative, will take place at 10 a.m. Jan. 14 at the Newcastle Professional Center.
Final drafts of the Washington State Redistricting Commission’s maps move the city of Newcastle from the 8th to Smith’s 9th Congressional District next year.
The event is free and open to the public.
Congressman Dave Reichert will represent Newcastle until the end of 2012, but Newcastle, Mercer Island and Bellevue will shift to representation from the 9th District in 2013.
