Arizona redistricting panel to meet for first time

The state’s new redistricting commission meets for the first time Thursday, with the four members picked so far selecting an independent who will serve as the fifth member and chairman.

Legislative leaders selected the first four members — two Democrats and two Republicans. They will interview the five independent applicants before picking one.

The commission will use 2010 Census data to draw new congressional and legislative districts for the state to use in elections this decade.
