The lines have been drawn and re-drawn and, as of Friday, Oswego County will be divided into two Congressional districts.
The most recent plan is most likely the final.
Oswego County Republican Chairman Mike Backus said the county Republican committee endorsed Ann Marie Buerkle and Richard Hanna at a meeting held Thursday evening. “It looks to be final,” Backus said of the county’s two new districts.
U.S. Magistrate Roanne Mann made some changes to the original map she had submitted but her new lines left Central New York unchanged
