Because of redistricting plans approved last year by Gov. Rick Snyder, Wyandotte will become part of the state Senate's 1st District.
That district is currently represented by state Sen. Coleman Young II, who attended Monday night's City Council meeting to introduce himself to the community.
The 1st District includes Ecorse, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, River Rouge, Riverview, Trenton, Woodhaven and Wyandotte, along with parts of Brownstown and Detroit.
The terms of state senators don't expire until 2014, at which time the new districts will take affect. A November 2014 election will decide who represents the new 1st District as of Jan. 1, 2015. Until then, Wyandotte remains in the 8th District with state Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood.
