Unfortunately, the process of redistricting, one that was intended to ensure fair and equal representation, has become corrupted over time. Our research shows that if allowed the opportunity, the majority party will almost always take advantage of the process by gerrymandering for political advantage. Nassau County is no exception. Redistricting there has been turbulent and litigious. In recent years, it was among the most controversial items of the Legislative calendar and painful for nearly everyone involved. The 2011-2013 redistricting fight in Nassau was spurred by confusion and internal conflict within the Nassau County Charter itself. We are working with our many members in Nassau County and our coalition partners to recommend revisions to the Nassau County Charter addressing the problems which the most recent redistricting cycle in Nassau County revealed.
