The Ohio state legislature is trying to undermine our efforts to end gerrymandering by putting a watered-down version of redistricting reform on the May ballot. Their proposal will likely leave the legislature in control of drawing the congressional district map. We need an independent commission to take charge of the map.
Legislative action is imminent. Please choose one of the following options. And please share this email with your friends.
Here are the legislators you need to contact and their phone numbers:
Sen. Matt Huffman: 614.466.7584
Rep. Kirk Schuring: 614.752.2438
Senate President Larry Obhof: 614.466.7505
House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger: 614.466.3506
Here’s a script for your call:
I’m an Ohio voter, and I care about redistricting reform. I’m calling today to let you know that I will be keeping an eye on what the Congressional Redistricting Working Group proposes, and I hope it will be meaningful, real reform — something I can support and, ideally, something very similar to the Fair Congressional Districts for Ohio proposal.
