County Board Approves Supervisor Taylor’s Redistricting Reform Proposal

Milwaukee County’s next required redistricting process will occur in 2020, following the federal decennial census.

By - Mar 17th, 2016 02:28 pm

A resolution and ordinance change sponsored by Supervisor Steve F. Taylor that will reform the way that Milwaukee County draws its supervisory districts was approved by the County Board on Thursday, 15-2. Taylor’s plan depoliticizes the redistricting process, transferring that power from the hands of lawmakers to an Independent Redistricting Committee. The committee will be comprised of six retired judges, appointed and confirmed by the County Board. A panel of community stakeholders from local universities and public interest and policy groups would provide feedback about the appointees prior to their confirmation.

“I am pleased with the Board’s decision to come together to support this initiative. This is a win for Milwaukee County residents interested in transparent and open government,” said Taylor. “Simply put, this ordinance is a mechanism for good government. I look forward to watching this process unfold in the future.”

Milwaukee County’s next required redistricting process will occur in 2020, following the federal decennial census.
