Jerry Nadler

79th St and Columbus Avenue, New York

Jerrold Nadler, my Congressman, incongruously pitted against Carolyn Maloney in the upcoming Democratic primary. He has represented the liberal Upper West Side for years; she, the slightly less liberal Upper East Side. Redistricting has put them in the same, new district. I stopped and spoke to him about it for a while. As a lifelong, non-aligned, independent voter I am disallowed from voting in Democratic primaries in NY, a severe handicap.
