Ohio Democratic Party Statement on Republicans’ Failure to Convene Redistricting Commission
September 13, 2023
Columbus, OH – Today, the Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement after Republicans on the Redistricting Commission failed to even agree on a co-chair, further delaying the redistricting process after more than a year and half of inaction from Republican politicians on the Commission.
“After 16 months of inaction, Republican politicians have broken the redistricting process so completely that they can’t even agree on basic procedural decisions. It’s clear that Republicans on the Commission are already more concerned with settling political scores rather than doing the work they were elected to do. And Ohioans are paying the price. It’s time to put redistricting back in the hands of the people and remove politicians from the process,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
