If I weren't busy Tuesday, I would go to Albany to rally with Ed Koch for redistricting reform...Love going to those type of events, and Hizzoner did call the HOTLINE last fall.
So far no NNY lawmakers have signed on to the bill.This isn't something you embrace without the OK from leadership and the calculus will be made who wins and loses in the bill....I suspect Senate Republicans are not going to like shrinking the standard variation for population from 5% to 1 %.....That could cost upstate a seat.
Still, I have enormous respect for Mayor Koch getting so involved in the reform agenda. I read his book for those of you who only think I read Palin prose.
