Thomas Condemns Senate Passage of Republican Congressional Map
November 16, 2021
Today, state Senator Cecil Thomas (D-Avondale) released the following statement after the Senate passed, on a party-line vote, Senate Bill 258 – a congressional district map that continues to gerrymander Ohio’s communities:  

“This congressional map does not reflect my constituents or my county. Hamilton county has been cracked into three different districts – none of which fairly represent voters’ preferences. By splitting the Black population in Hamilton County, this map does significant harm to minority communities. This is not what the people wanted. They asked for fair representation, not racially gerrymandered districts.”
