To the Editor: On April 16, members of Represent Pennsylvania, along with non-partisan reform groups from around the state, will converge on the state capital in Harrisburg on April 16 to deliver a corruption report card to the Pennsylvania government, giving an F grade based on the Center for Public Integrity's State Integrity Investigation nonpartisan assessment. One of the major focuses of the study is Pennsylvania's lack of a sound redistricting process. Represent Pennsylvania and allied groups like Fair Districts PA are fighting for a non-partisan citizens redistricting process embodied in SB22 and HB722. Gerrymandering in Pennsylvania is among the worst in the nation, and the process is inherently corrupt. We the people of Pennsylvania must take action to change the redistricting process with SB22 and HB722. Represent Pennsylvania is bringing together conservatives, progressives and everyone in between to fight corruption in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has an F corruption risk grade, ranking as the 5 most corrupt state government in the nation, and that is unacceptable. Represent Pennsylvania is here to tell our elected officials that we demand better. Represent Pennsylvania is the state chapter of Represent.Us, the nation's largest grassroots anti-corruption campaign. Represent.Us members have a plan to fight corruption and fix our corrupt political system by passing anti-corruption laws in cities and states around the country that stop political bribery, end secret money and fix our broken elections.
