Due to congressional redistricting, beginning Jan. 3, the counties of Surry, Stokes and Rockingham will no longer fall within the boundaries of North Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District that is represented by Republican U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx.

Foxx, who has represented Surry, Stokes and Rockingham since 2005, on Dec. 28 released the following statement for residents regarding the change:

“It is an honor to represent the people of North Carolina’s Fifth District in the U.S. House of Representatives. But due to redistricting, the Fifth District I serve will no longer include the counties of Surry, Stokes and Rockingham. Beginning Jan. 3, residents of those counties may contact their new (Sixth District) representative, Howard Coble, for assistance with any federal matters.”
