Urges colleagues to abide by fair standards at task force’s first public meeting
Senator Martin Malavé Dilan, member of the Legislative Task Force on Demographic Research and Reapportionment (LATFOR), urged colleagues to embrace many of the reforms the public has been calling for during the task force’s first public meeting of the 2011- 12 redistricting process.
In a continuation of his work to reform the redistricting process, Senator Martin Malavé Dilan (D-Brooklyn) has been appointed as a member of the Legislative Task Force on Demographic Research and Reapportionment for the Senate Democratic Conference.“The State Senate must remain a bellwether of redistricting reforms in New York. The ability to disenfranchise any one-person or community for the sake of political gain with the stroke of a pen is unconscionable,” said Senator Dilan.
Senator Martin Malavé Dilan, Ranking Democrat on LATFOR, Senator Michael Gianaris, and Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries, were joined by Senate and Assembly Democrats during a recent interactive public forum on redistricting reform.
Speakers include: Citizens Union, Common Cause NY, League of Women Voters of New York, NYPIRG and Andrew BeveridgePh.D, of CUNY.
@Senator Dilan is the Democratic Minority Member sitting on LATFOR. He has been fighting to keep the process open, fair and free of partisan gerrymandering. Keep up to date with the Task Force and the Senator’s latest efforts.
