State Rep. John Boccieri, one of only 10 Ohio House members to vote against the redistricting plan, said the proposal was “rushed through for political reasons so it can beat the citizens-led initiative to the ballot box. A more favorable process does not equal a fair process and we need more time to come together to ensure this outcome.”

Boccieri of Poland, D-59th, said: “Burning a process into the state constitution because we cannot break through the partisanship of a rigged system is an indictment of our present political status. Colleague after colleague said they are hopeful this will bring about better relationships. I submit to my constituents that hope is not a strategy.”
