“A million of us have no vote in Albany”

Jerry Goldfeder: “Because of 11 legislative vacancies, approximately 1.1 million New Yorkers are not represented in the New York State Assembly, and another 630,000 residents have no state senator. Although voters usually go to their local elected officials to solve community problems and to pass legislative fixes, perhaps the absence of a voice in Albany hasn’t hit their radar yet. Budgetary discussions are heating up, however — so it is just a matter of time.”
