MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address on the announcement of the judicial panel’s selections to the People’s Maps Commission and the Commission’s first public hearing on Thurs., Oct. 1, 2020.
Hi, folks. Governor Tony Evers here.
I believe, and I know Wisconsinites do too, that the people should get to choose their elected officials, not the other way around.
That’s why earlier this year I announced and established The People’s Maps Commission.
This commission will work over the next several months to listen to voters and experts to draw our next electoral maps for the state of Wisconsin to be considered by the Legislature during the 2021 redistricting process.
This week we announced the members of that commission who were selected by a nonpartisan panel of retired judges.
These folks are doctors, librarians, and teachers, not politicians, lobbyists, or elected officials. They come from each one of Wisconsin’s legislative districts, from Racine to Menomonie, and they represent the best Wisconsin has to offer.
I am looking forward to this diverse, energetic, and talented group leading the way on nonpartisan redistricting in our state.
Folks, this isn’t a Democratic or Republican redistricting commission, and it’s certainly not the Tony Evers redistricting commission. It’s your commission.
You can meet the commission members and learn more about the Commission at their first public hearing on Thursday, October 1st. For more information, please visit: www.wisconsin.gov/
