Skarlatos Blasts Kotek, Redistricting Plan
“The process favors the Democratic Party”

U.S. Congressional candidate Alek Skarlatos has taken note of Oregon Speaker of the House Tina Kotek's removal two Republicans from the House Redistricting Committee, saying that it was done to ensure the process favors the Democratic Party.

“Oregon Democrats promised to work with Republicans on redistricting, but now they are breaking their word and rigging the electoral system to ensure that these districts will create as many Democrat elected officials as possible, while silencing those who disagree. Redistricting is supposed to balance each district by population, instead Democrats are using it as a tool to game the system, gain more power and advance their liberal agenda. The Democrats went as far as to propose a map that would place four congressional districts in the city of Portland, a district that crosses the Cascade Mountains to include a portion of the city of Portland and the city of Bend, and splits seven counties in 9 different ways. This is textbook gerrymandering being pushed just to aid one political party.”

Skarlatos is expected to run next year against 12-term incumbent Peter DeFazio in what is currently the 2nd Congressional District.
