Tom Cullerton Disgusted with Independent Maps Decision
Aug 26, 2016 5:00 PM - VILLA PARK, IL-- Senator Tom Cullerton expressed disgust at the Illinois Supreme Court's decision to block the Independent Maps Initiative from the November ballot. Cullerton also vowed to do his part to get the initiative on the ballot during the upcoming veto session in Springfield. "As I have said before, I believe that voters should choose their legislators, not the other way around," Senator Tom Cullerton said. "I have already expressed my support for this reform measure by voting for the state senate's version of the independent map amendment last session. I will do everything in my power to get this referendum on the ballot during the veto session because I want to give voters the opportunity to reclaim their voice in the democratic process on November 8th."
