In 2000, when voters created the independent redistricting commission, their goal was to give power back to the people and end the back-room deals by a handful of politicians. Today’s ruling protects that goal and closes the door once and for all on the back-room dealmakers and their power grabs. I stand with Arizona voters on this and other efforts to empower and engage them in our political process.”
