KENOSHA – Representative Tod Ohnstad (D-Kenosha) today issued the following statement in response to the U.S. District Court’s ruling requiring Wisconsin’s political maps to be re-drawn constitutionally and used for the 2018 elections:

“Today’s court decision is an important step toward returning political power from legislative Republicans to the people of Wisconsin. No political party should gerrymander their way into a never-ending majority.”

“As we begin to redraw Wisconsin’s voting maps so they actually pass constitutional muster, I call on legislative Republicans to be up front with the people of Wisconsin throughout the redistricting process. Wisconsin citizens deserve no less than full transparency, meaningful public participation, and, ultimately, free and fair elections.”
