Redistricting strengthens democracy

An open letter to state Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Little Neck):

Thank you for following up on your campaign pledge and committing to support nonpartisan, independent redistricting for the 2012 elections by signing on as a cosponsor of A5388 (Silver).

On March 1 in Albany, I began announcing the names of those who had honored their redistricting pledge by doing so and I wrote to all those who still have not, informing them that I will begin announcing the names of those who have reneged and declared them “enemies of reform.”

Be assured that, since you are already a cosponsor of A5388, you will not be among those included.

The budget has been passed and we believe the priority at this time is redistricting reform. My hope is that with your continued help we will successfully create a more functional government for you to work in and serve the communities you represent.

All the best.
