Matanuska-Susitna Borough challenging new redistricting maps

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The Matanuska-Susitna Borough is suing the Alaska Redistricting Board over recently drawn legislative boundaries that it says dilutes the votes of borough residents.

    Attorney Stacey Stone is representing the borough and its manager Michael Brown in the case.

    She says the lawsuit was filed Thursday.

    The case did not immediately show up on the court’s online records system.

    The board finalized its maps Nov. 10, triggering a period in which challenges could be filed.

    The board's executive director says the board will review any legal challenges with its legal counsel and respond through the court system.
