New legislative maps shake up Adirondack, North Country politics

Listen to this story
The legislative task force charged with drawing new political maps for New York state released its plans for the state Senate and Assembly yesterday.

The new district lines, if approved by lawmakers and Governor Cuomo, would bring major changes for the North Country, with Hamilton County and St. Lawrence County experiencing the biggest shift.

In the future, St. Lawrence County would be represented by four different members of the Assembly.

It could also mean a new political dynamic in the Adirondack Park. Brian Mann joined Martha Foley to talk about the details.
