WISNIEWSKI CONFIDENT NEW LEGISLATIVE MAP WILL WITHSTAND TEA PARTY COURT CHALLENGE

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, the Democratic Co-Chair of the Legislative Apportionment Commission, today issued the following statement on the Tea Party’s court challenge to the recently approved redistricting map:

“We are extremely confident in the constitutionality of the recently adopted map, which underwent a through review by not only our attorneys, but former Attorney General John Farmer, who served as counsel to the 11th member of the commission.

“This is a map that not only met traditional redistricting criteria but improved upon compactness, competitiveness and one-person, one-vote standards and will ultimately be found constitutional,” said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex).
