Congresswoman Terri Sewell

Congresswoman Terri Sewell, on Monday, released the following statement regarding the submission by a special master of three new congressional map proposals in compliance with a federal court’s order:

“Today, despite the relentless efforts by state officials to delay, obstruct, and defy, we are one step closer to having fair congressional maps in the State of Alabama! 

“I applaud the special master for submitting three strong proposals which prove what we have long known to be true; the creation of two districts where Black voters can elect a candidate of their choice was possible from the very beginning.

“I look forward to the adoption of one of these proposals and I remain ready and eager to continue representing the great people of Alabama’s 7th Congressional District!”
