You Can Now Sign a Petition to Split New York Three Ways

WKBW-TV, APRIL 29, 2019

(WKBW) — You can now sign a petition to split the state of New York into three autonomous regions.

State Assemblymember David DiPietro (R,C,I-East Aurora) created the petition .

The petition says that a lot of taxes from upstate New York are being invested into New York City. “New York City has taxed us out of our homes and our businesses. Our values are ignored and our resources are shipped downstate where we never see the benefits.”

The state would be divided into three regions: New Amsterdam, Montauk, and New York. Each region would elect a governor and have its own legislature.

There is also a proposal in the state assembly. You can read the proposal here.

    I think that if we really want control in Upstate NY, we would have more control of our wallet and our values if we petitioned for county to county electoral college like presidential elections. If you look at the last Governor Race, I think if Upstate NY counties had an electoral vote, we would have, top to bottom, more conservative representation in our State Government. It would also preserve the State Retirement System many of us have participated in.

    I want to sign in support of splitting NYS into three independent districts. Everyone wins. Let each area be responsible for their own way of life. Let NYC residents throw away their rights. I don’t want them taking mine away.
