Supervisor Taylor’s Redistricting Reform Proposal Passes Committee, 5-1

“This is a common-sense measure that will help to restore faith and transparency in Milwaukee County’s redistricting procedure.”

By - Mar 3rd, 2016 12:40 pm

A resolution sponsored by Supervisor Steve F. Taylor that will alter the way that Milwaukee County draws its supervisory districts passed the Judiciary, Safety and General Services Committee on Thursday by a vote of 5-1. Taylor’s proposal will depoliticize the redistricting process, transferring that power from the hands of lawmakers to an Independent Redistricting Committee. The committee would 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.

“This is a common-sense measure that will help to restore faith and transparency in Milwaukee County’s redistricting procedure,” said Taylor. “Simply put, this ordinance is a mechanism for good government. I will encourage my colleagues to adopt it when it comes time to vote.”

Milwaukee County’s next required redistricting process will occur in 2020, following the federal decennial census. The full County Board will consider the resolution on March 17.
