Columbus—Today, Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) announced that Senator Vernon Sykes (D-Akron) will serve on the working group that has been formed by Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) and House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) to review the process of congressional redistricting.
 
“Senator Sykes has more experience on redistricting than almost anyone in the General Assembly,” said Senator Yuko. “He has led on this issue through joint sponsorship of the legislation and successful ballot campaign to change how our state’s legislative districts are drawn. I am pleased to have someone with his experience represent the Senate Democratic Caucus on the panel.”
 
“Bringing an end to gerrymandered districts has long been a passion of mine,” said Senator Sykes. “I was proud to lead the fight to reform our state legislative redistricting process, and I look forward to helping reform how our congressional districts are drawn. I hope that we can work in a bi-partisan manner to come up with a process that ensures fair congressional districts regardless of which party is in power.”
 
Senator Sykes will serve with fellow working group members Representative Kirk Schuring (R-Canton), Senator Matt Huffman (R-Lima), and the representative from the House Democratic Caucus, who is expected to be named soon.
