Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Tompkins County to join 25th district?

Congresswoman Buerkle

Is this an attack on one New York's most conservative member of Congress?
Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25) has released the following statement in regards to Congressional redistricting:

"A story earlier today citing anonymous sources indicated that the current 25th Congressional District could be redrawn to include all of Tompkins County. This is just one step in a lengthy redistricting process and these maps will be presented to a federal judge, who will determine what shape the lines will take by March 12th. I will be on the ballot in 2012 and intend to continue the work I've started in Washington. If the results of redistricting require us to introduce myself to a new set of voters, I look forward to carrying my message of smaller government, personal liberty, and economic prosperity across central New York."
Or will the Prius-driving, global warming conference-attending academics of fair Tompkins be represented by Ann Marie?  


  1. Hey, South--I drive a Prius (I also drive a Silverado :-) ). I sure wouldn't mind being represented by Ann Marie.

  2. Failure to respect the utilitarian boundaries offered by three, four and five digit postal zip codes can only result in judicial intervention.
