Ohio Democratic Party Statement As Redistricting Commission Convenes Today
August 6, 2021
Columbus, OH — Today, the Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement as the Ohio Redistricting Commission convenes for the first time today.
“Ohio voters have twice overwhelmingly called for redistricting reform and fair representation, because they understand that the issues they care about — jobs, wages, voting rights, and investment in local communities — are on the line. As the Commission convenes today, it must abide by the wishes of Ohioans who have called for change. Any partisan maneuvering that ignores the will of the voters, leaves their interests behind and produces maps similar to the ones we have now is unacceptable,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
