COLUMBUS –House Minority Leader and Ohio Redistricting Commission member Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) today issued a statement after the Ohio Supreme Court struck down the newest state legislative maps adopted by the Redistricting Commission on a party line vote on Jan. 22. 

“The people have been vindicated once again with this decision. I am especially grateful to the Ohioans who worked to enshrine fair districts in our constitution. This decision affirms that it is possible to draw fair, constitutional maps that closely reflect the statewide voting preferences of Ohioans. I am committed to delivering fair maps to the voters and hope Republican Commission members will finally work in good faith to produce maps that meet these constitutional requirements.”

The Redistricting Commission now must redraw the state legislative maps by Feb. 17.
