Important to Keep Primary Election Timeline On Track
HARRISBURG – Senate Majority Leader Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland) today offered the following statement regarding the redistricting maps.
“Today, I voted to advance the preliminary redistricting maps presented by the Legislative Reapportionment Commission. My vote is an effort to keep the timeline for the primary election intact. The commission is tasked with creating a fair map, that can be adjusted based on the census data, and that is good for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Without question, corrections are necessary to the Senate map. Following my review of the House map, it is clear several corrections need to be made. During the next 30 days, the public will have the opportunity to comment on the maps presented today, and I look forward to hearing their thoughts. At the conclusion of those 30 days, the commission will then have the opportunity to make ‘corrections’ to the maps. Our work on the maps is not done, and I look forward to continuing this process over the next 30 days.”
