Adriano Espaillat

March 15, 2011

On Monday, March 14th, State Senator Adriano Espaillat (D – Manhattan/Bronx) voted against Senate Republicans’ latest attempt to block real redistricting reform. Republicans are pushing a constitutional amendment that would establish independent redistricting – 10 years from today. This is yet another cynical political ploy by Albany Republicans to preserve the broken status-quo and prevent voters from choosing their representatives, and not the other way around.
