City of Yonkers to Host Two Public Town Halls on Redistricting

There are two town halls scheduled for the public to voice their concerns over the newly proposed city council district maps.

The redistricting process takes place every 10 years. After a struggle to secure a consultant to help draw the new maps, the city is poised to present these to the public soon.

There will be two town halls. The first will be held at the Riverfront Library on Monday January 23th at 6pm. The second will be at the Grinton Will Library on Wednesday January 25th at 6pm. Both meetings are scheduled to be 1.5 hours long.

The 1st, 3rd, and 5th council seats are up for re-election this year. The first district is an open seat with two declared contenders. The third and fifth districts have no declared challengers to the incumbents.

Even if your current district is not up for re-election this year, you may have been moved into a new district. And whether or not you will be casting a ballot in 2023 for City Council, knowing your Council Member is fundamentally important. This is who represents you and serves you. If you have a problem, your Council Member can be an invaluable resource to resolve it.
