New York’s Highest Court Tosses Gerrymandered Legislative Maps

ONEONTA, 04/27/22 -- State Senator Peter Oberacker (R/C – Schenevus) today commented on the decision by the New York State Court of Appeals invalidating Congressional and New York State Senate legislative maps drawn by the Democrat-majority:

“Albany insiders, working to consolidate power and block the will of the people, were handed a sound reprimand by New York’s highest court.  When your work is deemed ‘unconstitutional’ it is time to look in the mirror and adjust your definition of public service.

“It is an honor to serve the people of the 51st Senate District and I look forward to continuing to stand up for our shared values.  I eagerly await fair and independent legislative maps – that is what the public demands and deserves.”
