Lower Hudson Valley’s The Journal News Editorializes against New York Proposal 1

Redistricting

Following a discussion with Common Cause New York’s Executive Director Susan Lerner, the editorial board of The Journal News announced its opposition to Proposal 1. Common Cause opposes the proposal, which would enshrine in the Constitution of New York State a redistricting commission largely controlled by the state legislature. The editorial stated “New York voters should fight for a better plan, rather than settle for incremental crumbs. Say ‘no thanks’ to Proposal 1's redistricting commission scheme.” Read the editorial and watch video of Lerner’s discussion with the editorial board.
