Noon Update: map of redrawn State Senate Districts.
The 22nd State Senate District occupied by Anthony Musto, according to the map, will no longer take in the Upper East Side. The neighborhood was redrawn into the the district of State Senator Ed Gomes. Musto also lost a portion of Monroe. The multi-town district includes all of Trumbull. Musto’s Bridgeport district covers the upper North End, West Side and Black Rock. Gomes has most of the rest of the city and continues to have a portion of Stratford. Link to map below.
