New York Legislators Speak to the Need for Fair Redistricting

Last night, the Association of the Bar of the City of New York held an event to discuss “Reforming Albany: the Road Ahead,” a task that necessarily begins with fair redistricting. Two lines worth remembering, from an excellent all-around event. Mayor Ed Koch: “fair redistricting is an ‘existential threat’ to the Republican [senate] majority.” Senator John Sampson: “voters pick their representatives — not the other way around.”
