One Last Time: Electeds Stay Out of New York City Redistricting

NEW YORK, NY (11/01/2022) (readMedia)-- Ahead of tonight's scheduled Public Hearing on the revised NYC Redistricting plan, Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause/NY issued the following statement:

"The City Council has accepted the most recent map drawn by the NYC Districting Commission. The city's redistricting process has been marred by embarrassing attempts by the Mayor and the Council to undercut the redistricting commission with their wildly inappropriate meddling. From LA to NYC redistricting is supposed to be about serving the interests of the people, not the politicians who work for them. Tonight, New Yorkers expect that New York City's official redistricting process will finally be concluded with the formal certification of the maps by the Commission."
