Troy City Council Republicans Seek Change to Independent Redistricting Process

A Republican majority took control of Troy’s City Council in January after the November 2021 election, and in its first regular meeting of 2022, City Council President Carmella Mantello introduced legislation that would amend the city charter to change the make-up of the city’s first independent redistricting commission. HMM correspondent Corinne Carey spoke with Mantello, as well as the ranking minority member, Democrat Sue Steele, as well as former city councilperson who currently serves as a Rensselaer County legislator, Ken Zalewski for this story that examines the politics of the move. You can listen to the full interviews with Mantello, Steele, and Zalewski on our website at mediasanctuary.org.
