Surprise Meeting by Redistricting Task Force

From a Statement by NYPIRG

The New York State Legislative Task Force on Demographic Research and Reapportionment  (LATFOR), the legislative committee tasked with redrawing New York’s legislative and congressional district lines, will be holding their Western New York public hearing tomorrow at 10 a.m. inside City Hall ... but who knew?

At 9:45, two government reform organizations – NYPIRG and the League of Women Voters – will be holding a brief news conference on the outside steps protesting the system represented by the hearing.  We will be speaking in support of Governor Cuomo’s redistricting reform proposal.  Visuals will include poster-sized maps representing the most gerrymandered districts in Western New York.  Both groups will submit testimony at the hearing.
