Franz Meyer supports independent county redistricting
"Supervisor districts should fairly represent county residents, not the interests of individual politicians or their parties."
MILWAUKEE – Franz Meyer, candidate for Milwaukee County Supervisor in District 14, released the following statement today regarding Supervisors Steve Taylor and John Weishan Jr.’s resolution to create an Independent Milwaukee County Redistricting Committee:
“I support the creation of the Independent Milwaukee County Redistricting Committee.
“Our democratic system is based on the principle of one person, one vote. In order for every vote to count and every voice to be heard in Milwaukee County we must have a fair, rational and independent process for assessing and drawing supervisor districts. The resolution introduced by Supervisors Taylor and Weishan Jr. creates such a process.
“I am running for Supervisor to ensure county government works for all residents of District 14 and all residents of Milwaukee County. Supervisor districts should fairly represent residents, not the interests of individual politicians or their parties.
“Thank you Supervisors Taylor and Weishan Jr., and the League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County, for your efforts to remove self-interested politics from Milwaukee County government.”
Meet the candidate event planned for March 16
Residents of District 14, which includes the Humboldt Park, Tippecanoe, Wilson Park and Mitchell International Airport neighborhoods, are invited to meet Meyer and learn more about his vision for Milwaukee County from 4:30-6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, at The Bubbler, 3158 S. Howell Ave.
