Democratic Caucus Wins Issue on Looking at Number of Oswego County Legislators

A new committee has been formed to explore the possibility of reducing the number of legislative districts in Oswego County.

Legislature Chairman Barry Leemann has named Legislator Dan Chalifoux (R) as chairman of the redistricting committee and Legislator Amy Tresidder (D) will serve as vice chairman.

Majority Leader Fred Beardsley (R) is the third member named to the committee.

The exploration of reducing the number of legislators from 25 to possibly 19 was requested by the Democrat caucus in June.

Tresidder said she has done extensive research on the issue and presented her finding to the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee.
