As Governor Hogan Submits Fair Maps, Arnold Schwarzenegger Urges Maryland Legislature To End Partisan Gerrymandering

Governor Hogan personally submitted fair maps drawn by the independent and non-partisan citizens commission to the Maryland legislature. While the Citizens commission has proposed maps that do not favor either party, the Maryland legislature’s partisan political panel has proposed maps that are even more gerrymandered than what are already among the most gerrymandered maps in America.

This comes as former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has written to Governor Hogan, praising the fair maps and urging the Maryland legislature to stop their “ugly” gerrymandering and instead “listen to their constituents and pass fair maps, and serve as public servants instead of party servants.” Schwarzenegger has long been a national leader on ending gerrymandering in both red and blue states.
