FDL County Board Revises, Then Passes Redistricting Resolution

18-Apr-2019

At its meeting Tuesday, the Fond du Lac County Board revised and then passed a resolution showing support for a non-partisan redistricting process in Wisconsin. The board voted 21-1 to pass the revised resolution, after substituting new language for the original wording. The new wording affirms “the right of all Wisconsin citizens to fair and equal representation” and requests “the enactment of a nonpartisan process for the preparation of legislative and congressional redistricting plan.” The original resolution was to “create an nonpartisan procedure for the preparation of legislative and congressional redistricting plans.”


County Supervisor Sam Kaufman motioned to substitute the new language, saying “My concern has always been, that the county board as a non-partisan body itself, should always try and do its best to maintain that position in appearance to the public. I felt that there was a little bit – maybe some of the wording – that would come across the wrong way as making this body partisan.” Kaufman says he along with Supervisors Tom Kitchen and Mary Hayes worked to craft the new language – saying the resolution they came up with “shows that bipartisan approach of working together as one body to make one statement itself.” The board had previously tabled discussion of the resolution twice, once in May of 2018 and a second time in February of this year.
