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.”
Press Releases by Peter Barca
"We should not be spending another cent defending unconstitutional legislative maps."
"Between the GOP leadership in the legislature and the governor, this week has delivered a double whammy for Wisconsin workers."
"It’s ironic that the Republicans are seemingly using the same lack of transparency that led to our state having one of the worst cases of gerrymandering in history"
“The GOP has let the taxpayers of Wisconsin down.”
“This is another shameless attack by Republicans on Wisconsin workers.”
The governor has bragged about his tax policies, while neglecting to mention that his cuts have largely benefitted the wealthy of our state.
