Revamped Council Committee to Explore Redistricting

By Howard Riedel

Buffalo, NY – Common Council President James Pitts has disbanded the Council's existing reapportionment committee, and formed a new committee made up entirely of lawmakers who oppose a plan to cut four Council seats.

The committee will begin a review Thursday of what it calls less divisive options for redrawing Buffalo's election districts.

Some of the Council members who support the current plan are calling this new committee a publicity ploy.
