Common Cause/NY on Today's Buffalo Redistricting Court Hearing

BUFFALO, NY (12/07/2022) (readMedia)-- Common Cause/NY Executive Director Susan Lerner issued this statement in anticipation of today's court hearing regarding Buffalo's most recent redistricting process:

"The procedure followed by Buffalo in drawing its new Council district lines did not live up to the requirements of the law or Buffalo residents' expectations of a fair and participatory process. The City's position that sending out a media advisory regarding any upcoming meeting constitutes "public notice" flies in the face of good common sense and should be rejected by the court."
