Today's NYC Charter Revision Commission issue forum will hear testimony from expert witnesses, including NYC Independence Party Harry Kresky. Please join other independents at Lehman College tonight at 6pm. (Yesterday's Hankster post has been corrected - sorry for the confusion!)
Partisans Rise for Elections Battle (By MICHAEL HOWARD SAUL, Wall Street Journal) "If you accept the fact that in most New York City races the winner of the Democratic primary wins the general election, then we're talking 1.4 million voters who can't participate in that critical first round of voting," Mr. Kresky said. "So, it's really a fundamental issue of democracy—a political system that excludes that many voters is not a good thing."
