Mayoral Charter Revision Commission Votes To Create Final Ballot Proposals

In the Gotham Gazette, Samar Khurshid reports on Mayor DeBlasio’s Charter Revision Commission’s plan to submit questions to the voters. Notably left out of the proposals are reforms to the current charter’s councilmanic redistricting provisions and creating instant runoff voting for city offices.

From the article: “The commission convened by Mayor Bill de Blasio to review and revise the city charter passed a resolution on Tuesday instructing its staff to create ballot proposals related to enhancing the municipal campaign finance system, increasing civic engagement and improving the role and structure of the city’s 59 community boards. At the same time, the commission punted on issues related to instant runoff voting and independent redistricting, leaving those to be resolved by a future charter revision commission.”
