Governor Wolf Supports Call for Independent Redistricting Commission
April 16, 2018
Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement on the Fair Districts PA rally to support a nonpartisan independent commission to create legislative and congressional district boundaries.
“It is wonderful to see people from across Pennsylvania in our state Capitol today to demand an end to gerrymandering, which creates gridlock and stifles reform. Voters should select their politicians, politicians shouldn’t select their voters.
“I stand with Fair Districts PA in their call for the legislature to pass truly nonpartisan redistricting reform and get it to my desk so an independent commission – not partisan politicians – is in charge of drawing legislative and congressional district boundaries.”
