Craven expecting new district maps by end of month

District 6, currently represented by Lee K. Allen, includes the heart of Havelock other than the Lake Road, Greenfield Heights, Westbrooke and Tucker Creek areas.

District 7, represented by Steve Tyson, includes areas west and south of Havelock, including Tucker Creek, Hickman Hills, Carolina Pines and Stately Pines.
