Letter to the Editor: Support for Redistricting Reform

Voters in district one have support for the League of Women Voters call for redistricting reform from our Representative, Joel Kitchens. Please see the League’s statement in the Pulse on February 22, 2019.  

At a public listening session on February 1st in Sturgeon Bay Representative Kitchens, when asked, stated while he would not introduce legislation on redistricting reform, he would support such a measure in the Assembly as our Representative.

This was followed by the audience requesting a show of hands in support of eliminating gerrymandering in Wisconsin. Seventy-five percent of those present confirmed yes.

Thank you Representative Kitchens for supporting a return to fair representation by districts in our state, a nonpartisan move.
