I'm very disappointed that a referendum to change the current map system has been struck down. Our current map system protects entrenched politicians in BOTH parties and should be changed not only here in Illinois, but across the entire country as well. This should NOT be a partisan issue.
I am in agreement with President Obama, who this past spring told the Illinois General Assembly: “In America, politicians should not pick their voters, voters should pick their politicians.”
This just makes it clear that we need independent bipartisan leaders - who are not beholden to party leadership or a couple of select billionaires - that will stand up to the entrenched interests in Springfield.
