Sen. Allen waging war on redistricting plan

Republican lawmaker says commission ‘arrogantly’ seeks to ‘redesign’ the state

State Sen. Sylvia Allen, who represents all of Rim Country, last week called upon the Payson Tea Party to help prevent the Independent Redistricting Committee from “turning us into a Blue State.” Senate President Pro Tem Allen (R-Snowflake) decried the work of the commission, saying “this is the tool that the progressives who don’t like our country are using to change our country. Gila County needs to intervene to file a brief to block these maps so it’s not just the Republican Party. They’ve redesigned our state arrogantly. It doesn’t make sense unless you’re out to isolate the voters so that their vote doesn’t matter. We have to fight to keep from letting our state go down the drain.”
