State Rep. Casey Weinstein (D-Hudson) issued a statement today after the Redistricting Commission failed to meet its constitutional duty to release, hold three hearings on, and adopt a state legislative district map by Sept. 1. Even though other maps have been presented to the Commission, the Commission itself has neither produced nor worked on one, and co-chair Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) has not given a date that the Commission will propose a map for review.
“The Commission failed Ohioans by not releasing a map yesterday,” said Rep. Weinstein. “Voters have overwhelmingly demanded fair districts, and I am standing with them to call for the Commission to deliver fair maps and real representation.”
The Commission met Tuesday but adjourned without scheduling its next meeting.
