Sen. Griffin on the Independent Redistricting Commission
By State Senator Gail Griffin
I understand the commission plans on submitting their final maps to the U.S. Department of Justice by Nov. 24. The DOJ then has to approve or reject the maps.
I firmly believe that this unelected, unaccountable commission has grossly violated their responsibility to the citizens of Arizona. Prop 106 clearly defined what this commission must do. They are to draw legislative and congressional districts that are not Gerrymandered for partisan advantage. They have failed miserably in that task.
