Statement From Erie County Republican Committee Chairman Michael Kracker on Redistricting

Statement From Erie County GOP Chairman Michael Kracker

“The Court of Appeals decision is a betrayal to the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers who spoke out against the corrupt process of partisan gerrymandering. Democrats not only ignored the voters and the initial court ruling but shamelessly stacked the state’s highest court to bulldoze their way to undoing independently drawn Congressional district lines.

This power grab will result in increased voter confusion, further erosion of the public’s faith in government, and the cheapening of our state’s most respected court, all so Democrats can try to increase their political power in New York and Washington. The Republican Party stands with the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers in opposition to this blatant corruption.”
