September 16, 2021Democratic Newsroom
Ohio Redistricting Commission member and House Minority Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) today issued a statement as Republican Commission members voted to pass a short-term, partisan state legislative district map after failing to address a number of concerns raised by Democrats and the public about the constitutionality of the Republican plan. The map will last four years.
“The Republican members of this commission have once again failed the people of Ohio,” said Leader Sykes.
