State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) 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.
“Ohio families deserve to see fair maps. It is disappointing that the commission did not meet its first deadline to draw fair districts,” said Rep. Galonski.
The Commission met Tuesday but adjourned without scheduling its next meeting.
