New York Supreme Court Releases Final Congressional Maps

The state Supreme Court Judge Patrick McAllister has released new redistricting maps for New York drawn by a Pennsylvania resident Jonathan Cervas.

The updated New York congressional and Senate maps caused a controversial reaction among the local politicians. Mainly, Jonathan Cervas, a Republican who does not live in New York, has become a sign of “utter disregard for cultural, social, and economic communities of interest,” which was “designed to reduce the number of NY Democrats in Congress.”

Cervas did not change the Manhattan district map, although it was suggested to split it into North and South areas instead of the current West and East areas. The local Orthodox Jewish community has opposed this initiative. Some of the community’s politicians suggested including the NGO in the list of “communities of interest,” which consider groups with shared interests or traits immune to any law amendments.

The New York congressional and Senate maps are now finalized and cannot be changed for the next decade by legislation.
