I want to apologize to Micah Kellner, Vanessa Gibson and Marco Crespo for inadvertently leaving them off my initial list of NYC Assemblymembers who voted “No” on the redistricting bill.
The Score so Far: Three Assemblymembers to whom Gatemouth owed an apology, and about 50 Assemblymembers who owe an apology to New York City.
