MADISON – Today, State Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) and Assembly Democrats launched the next project of Forward Wisconsin — Fair Maps. Forward Wisconsin is a project of the Assembly Democrats aimed at addressing issues that have broad, bipartisan support across the state. Rep. Vining issued the following statement regarding the new project:

“Every ten years, new lines are drawn for legislative districts, known as redistricting. Redistricting will occur again in 2021. This session, I introduced a bipartisan bill with my colleagues that would take this power away from the politicians, and place the responsibility with a non-partisan service agency called the Legislative Reference Bureau. We are committed to nonpartisan redistricting reform, and will continue to advocate for fair and representative legislative maps.

“72% of Wisconsinites and 50 counties agree — Wisconsin needs Fair Maps. But for it to succeed, we need the voice of the people. Forward Wisconsin is aimed at amplifying the voices of the majority of Wisconsinites who support Fair Maps for a Fair Wisconsin.

“As a State Representative I took an oath, an oath I take seriously. I am not here to draw maps to protect my job, I am here to draw maps to protect the will of the people. It is my job to protect the will of the people, and that is precisely our mission with Fair Maps legislation and Forward Wisconsin.

“The will of the people is the law of the land, and the voice of the people is the heart of our state. Every vote deserves equal value. Join us in the #Fight4FairMaps and we can move forward together.”
