The Impact of Potential Redistricting in Nassau County

A presentation by the League of Women Voters.

The Sands Point Civic Association and the League of Women Voters will hold a community-wide presentation by the Nassau Redistricting Coalition and the League of Women Voters on Wednesday, 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Community Synagogue in Port Washington.  

The presenters include Leg. Wayne Wink (D-Roslyn); Leg. Judy Bosworth (D-Great Neck); Matthew Kiernan, co-executive director at Nassau County Temporary Districiting Advisory Commission; and Barbara Epstein, co-chair of the Nassau County League of Women Voters and member of the Nassau Redistricting Coalition. Kay Ullman will be the moderator.

The program will consist of a power point presentation and explanation of the process; gathered data will be shared as well as the proposed "map."  What will be its impact on legislative representation in Nassau County?  A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

Given the democratic slant this will obviously present, Ill be passing on this one. I just can not respect anyone who could remain politically alligned with a party that gave us obama.

The problem I have with the redistricting process is both Democrats and Republican interests are different than that of the voters. Since the parties handle the process the voter gets screwed!

I fear the exact opposite, since the meeting is taking place in Sands Point :-)

With the amount of comments it looks like no one cares. Just let me remind you of the Towns redistricting about 15 years ago, the Dem's cut up the districts so it was almost impossible for the Rep.s to win they gave one distrist to the R's so they look fair. Since then it was only this past year that an R. won a seat. It was time for Fred Pollack to go. So now the Dem.s are crying in their milk because the Rep's have control. Turn around is FAIR PLAY.
