State Senator James Settlemeyer, District 17

"It was the general public that was harmed."

- State Senator James Settlemeyer, District 17, says redistricting maps were revised at the eleventh hour to count an additional over 1,800 inmates at their pre-incarceration addresses. This changed the population data and ultimately affected recorded populations specifically in rural areas. He says that this process invalidated 700 maps made by the general public, while maps made by the caucuses could easily correct the technical problem.
