“Chestnut” was one of one of three maps that the commissioners put forward and was subject to 45 days of public comment before the final vote.
Immediately after the final map was approved, U.S. Congresswoman Haley Stevens announced that she will be filing to re-run for election in the new 11th District of Michigan.
Now that we have final mapping configurations, I am excited to announce that I will continue representing my home, Oakland County and will be filing to run for re-election in the new Michigan's 11th.— Haley Stevens (@HaleyLive) December 28, 2021
