Pontiac – In another unprecedented example of partisanship in Oakland County, Republican County Commissioners on the, “Government Oversight Committee,” proposed and recommended the approval of a redistricting plan that is unquestionably legally inferior to a plan proposed by Democratic County Commissioner Dave Woodward.
“Oakland County Republicans seem intent on adopting a gerrymandered and illegal plan for one reason – ensure another decade of Republican dominance in Oakland County,” said Dave Woodward, Oakland County Commissioner (D-Royal Oak). “My Republican colleagues are recommending approval of a redistricting plan that is clearly in violation of state law, which directs us to choose the strongest plan.”
