Voters Not Politicians ready to argue before Michigan Supreme Court
The following can be attributed to Katie Fahey, founder and executive director of Voters Not Politicians:
Our legal team is confident that our ballot proposal meets all requirements to go before voters in November. We are prepared to make that argument to the Michigan Supreme Court. Voters deserve an opportunity to fix the current process, where politicians manipulate election maps behind closed doors, by voting to create a transparent redistricting process, where voters draw the lines with public input and a set of strict criteria that prevent maps being drawn to favor politicians and special interests.
Voters Not Politicians is a nonpartisan, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to passing a state constitutional amendment to end partisan gerrymandering by taking politicians and lobbyists out of the redistricting process and putting Michigan citizens in charge.
