“Last year, we raised the alarm when Democrats attempted to fast-track a constitutional amendment that would have made legislative elections less competitive while cementing permanent Democratic majorities in the New Jersey Legislature,” said Kean (R-21). “With broad bipartisan support from outside groups and respected academics, we defeated their attempt to rig our elections. Any changes to improve how we reapportion legislative districts should focus on making the process fairer and more transparent.”

In the process of blocking that anti-democratic amendment from advancing, a group of leading academics banded together to study the redistricting process and offer the recommendations for improvement that were released today.

“I appreciate the hard work that went into this report and the interest in improving our state’s democratic process,” added Kean. “I look forward to collaborating with these academics and other interested parties as we consider future redistricting reforms.”
