Shemia Fagan Congratulates Legislature
For completing their work to pass redistricting

Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan today congratulated the Oregon Legislature for completing their work to pass redistricting for Oregon.

“Congratulations to the Oregon Legislature for completing their Constitutional responsibility of redistricting of Oregon’s Congressional and Legislative districts.,” said Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan. “With leadership and persistence, they came together and got this done for the people of Oregon.”

Secretary Fagan also noted that her office was prepared to begin redistricting. "I'm extremely proud of the work my team did to prepare, in case the Legislature missed today’s deadline," said Secretary Fagan. “We’ve been working for months, reaching out to hundreds of community and civic organizations, culturally-based groups and others to lay the groundwork for a transparent public process. We also did a tremendous amount of work to set up our People’s Commission, infrastructure for public hearings and testimony, and an Oregonian-centered redistricting process.”

“I’m especially proud of the work we did to prepare the People’s Commission that would have reflected our growing population: Black, Indigenous, Latinx, people of color, rural, suburban, urban -- all those who call our beloved Oregon home. I want to thank the Oregonians from every corner of our state for stepping up to serve their neighbors. We will continue to engage these civic-minded Oregonians in the years to come."
