Redistricting Step #2

The Federal Magistrate has issued her recommended map for Congressional redistricting. It eliminates Hinchey's congressional district and combines 3 Congressman together in Long Island (2 Democrats and 1 Republican).

Ulster County would be in tact along with Greene, Columbia, Delaware, and Schoharie counties. There would be large portions of Dutchess County and Rensselaer County, with a small portion of Montgomery County, and a sliver of Broome County.

Congressman Gibson would be in our Congressional District.

This plan will go into effect unless the Legislature reaches a deal. Expect the Democrats to cave because they do not want to lose 3 Congressman (2 in Long Island and Hinchey).
