SAY NO TO THIS CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

Assembly Member Kellner Takes a Stand Against Partisan Politics

For the second year in a row, I voted no on a constitutional amendment that would enshrine partisan politics into our redistricting process.

I have always supported a nonpartisan and fair redistricting process that would take the power to redraw districts out of the hands of the Legislature. Unfortunately, this amendment allows legislators to reject their own district lines. New Yorkers want and deserve fair and honest government, which can only start with fair and honest districts, not backroom political deals.

Continuing a system that allows politicians to pick their voters fundamentally undermines and endangers our democracy. This amendment will go before the voters in 2014. I urge you to join me in voting no.
