Last week, the Cayuga County Government Operations Committee took a first look at changing the structure of the Legislature. Republican Tim Lattimore has long favored adopting a governing system similar to that used by Onondaga County.
In addition to redistricting, Lattimore wants to do away with the weighted voting system.
The Committee approved hiring Dr. Gerald Benjamin, of SUNY New Paltz’s Benjamin Center, to make a presentation to the Legislature. Dr. Benjamin assists local governments across NY with research, evaluation, and policy analysis.
