Redistricting; silent auction tomorrow

The Ithaca Journal reports on yesterday's redistricting forum. I'll have a lot more to say on this when I find a moment, but mostly I have to say that I found Assemblyman William Parment interesting but utterly unconvincing in his claims that redistricting in its current form works. Mike Lane is right that the State Legislature is broken, but somehow none of the majority party state legislators can see that. (I posted a bit yesterday about this at The Albany Project.)

Briefly in Tompkins notes a silent auction from 5:00pm to 8:00pm tomorrow night in the Dryden High School gymnasium. It will benefit the Dryden High School class of 2008.

Shareholders will vote next month on selling NYSEG to Iberdrola. Somehow I doubt anyone there will wonder what to do with the huge NYSEG fortress at the 13/366 intersection.

Cornell also doesn't sound like it wants to be troubled with the small stuff. Somehow I doubt Dryden will be the lead agency in these conversations, and wonder what that means for Dryden's western edge.

Thank you for the plug. It's nice to know that you are willing to show both sides of the IJ. Thanks again Hon. Clauson
