Rep. Barca Statement on Redistricting Decision
“Voters should be able to choose their representatives, not the other way around.”
MADISON – Today Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement on the ruling on the Republican gerrymandering case:
“Voters should be able to choose their representatives, not the other way around. Today’s ruling is a victory for democracy and the people of Wisconsin.
“Once again, a court has declared the Republican’s 2011 legislative maps unconstitutional. This is an historic victory for voters and a further admonishment of the extremely slanted maps that trample the democratic will of the people of Wisconsin.
“I want to thank the voters who came forward to bring this challenge and who bravely stood up for not only their own voting rights, but for the rights of all Wisconsinites.”
