Respect neighborhood borders, North Side community tells Syracuse redistricting committee – WAER

Dustin Czarny, the Democratic Elections Commissioner for Onondaga County, said population imbalance is a problem across the board. Czarny, who displayed the current maps at the meeting, said the area around Syracuse University’s South Campus is an extreme example.

“It’s a very transient district, where students only reside in their sophomore year, but you have several thousand. It’s very hard to figure out where to put it,” he said.

Czarny also pointed out there isn’t a district with a Black majority, even though the city’s population is X% African American, a concern echoed by many attendees.
