OKLAHOMA CITY — Now that the regular legislative session is complete, all eyes turn toward the most important political activity of the year: redrawing the shapes of Oklahoma’s five Congressional districts.
Over the summer, the state legislature has scheduled one town hall meeting in each district plus two virtual meetings. We need as many people as possible to attend and participate in these meetings.
Redistricting should be about you—the people of Oklahoma—not the politicians. However, some politicians are already strategizing how they can draw districts to set themselves up to run for Congress, putting their own careers ahead of the fair representation of Oklahoma voters. That kind of political selfishness erodes trust in our republic and is NOT acceptable.
The only way we can ensure Oklahoma has fair maps is to show up at these meetings and give our input into the process.
