Governor Misses Chance to Do the Right Thing, Walks the Party Line Instead

LANSING – Republican Governor Rick Snyder missed an opportunity to prove he’s not just another partisan politician by vetoing a bill that retroactively changes Oakland County’s redistricting map. Instead, the Governor proved he will continue to walk the GOP line by signing a blatantly partisan bill that disenfranchises voters.

“Governor Snyder likes to talk the talk of bipartisanship but he never walks the walk,” Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said. “Snyder wants the voters to believe he is a bipartisan governor who does what’s best for the state. But nothing could be further from the truth and voters can see right through his act.”

“By signing this redistricting bill, Snyder says ‘it’s okay to circumvent the process and be a sore loser,’” observed Brewer. “He’s helping his buddy Brooks Patterson continue his partisan power grab in Oakland County. Snyder had the opportunity to do the right thing, and instead he chose to help out his Republican cronies. Voters will hold him accountable for that.”
