Whats the story you should be pining over today ? Is it that March came in like a lamb depite media hype to the contrary ? Or are you dragging yourself out of bed this AM in a frenzy over the rival plans for redrawing our Congressional district.
Think of how much money we could save if we lived in a Wyoming or Delaware and didn't have to do this decennial exercise in manipulation.
So the Dems want to preserve Rep. Bill Owens by adding Utica to the district and removing some rural areas that vote GOP. It makes a more compact district and a more Democratic one. The GOP wants the district to remain rural with Watertown the biggest city. They want to add Herkimer County, and the rest of Fulton County to the get the population to the needed level.
It's all supposed to be resolved by March 12 in time for petition gathering to begin on the 20th.
With the new primary date in June, March will politically at least be going in and out like a lion.
