Fourth District State Representative Lynn Bechler will take in a portion of Christian County under redistricting legislation that passed the General Assembly this summer and he was in Hopkinsville today to introduce himself.
The republican from Marion will represent Crittenden, Livingston, Caldwell and a portion of Christian County under the new map. Christian County precincts included are Life Tabernacle 1 and 2, Concord north and south, Millbrooke #1, Faith Lutheran Church, New Work Fellowship and Sinking Fork.
Representative Bechler was interviewed after the Fiscal Court meeting and said he was satisfied with his new boundaries and looks forward to meeting his constituents in Christian County.
Even though he's okay with how the 4th District turned out, he understands why some of his fellow Republicans have concerns about politics in the process.
Representative Bechler was elected for the first time last year.
