STATEMENT OF TREASURER TATE REEVES
ON TODAY’S REDISTRICTING RULING

May 16, 2011

“The court made the proper ruling today and followed the Mississippi Constitution, which calls for redistricting to occur the year after census data is released. I applaud and congratulate Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann for his successful advocacy of the correct outcome in this matter. Today’s ruling is a victory for local election officials and voters who won’t have to be rushed into contending with new maps and district lines this year, only to have them change again next year.”
