State Rep. Bonnie Rich, R-Suwanee, unveiled this proposed Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners redistricting map on Monday. The map changes the numbers for three of the four commission districts.

A proposed Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners redistricting map unveiled by state Rep. Bonnie Rich, R-Suwanee, on Monday has prompted an internal fight among members of the Gwinnett legislative delegation and local Democrats hurling criticisms at the GOP majority in the Georgia House of Representatives.

Rich’s proposed map keeps the commission at four districts plus a chairwoman while creating a Republican-friendly district in northern Gwinnett. The big issue that initially emerged on Monday over the numbering for Districts 1, 2 and 4 which would have changed for those districts.
