I believe, and Wisconsinites do too, that people should get to choose their elected officials, not the other way around. Over the last several years, 51 Wisconsin counties, representing almost 80 percent of the people of Wisconsin have passed resolutions or referenda supporting nonpartisan redistricting in our state.
That’s why during my 2020 State of the State Address, I promised to create a nonpartisan redistricting commission, comprised of the people of our state—not elected officials, not lobbyists, and not political party officials—who will draw The People’s Maps.
These folks will hear directly from voters across our state, from every congressional district, and will work together to draw fair, impartial maps for the Legislature to take up next year.
Let’s move our state forward with fair, impartial maps and let’s do it together.
