'Uprising' update: Four LI'ers down, 20 still missing...

Among the new additions -- as described earlier -- to the 'New York Uprising' list of those declaring support for 'non-partisan' redestricting, are four challengers for LI Assembly seats. All signed the pledges. They are:

Deborah McKee, a Republican, running against Assemb. Steven Englebright (D-Setauket), who signed the pledges earlier.

Scott Diamond, a Republican, running against Assemb. Michelle Schimel (D-Great Neck) who hasn't signed.

John Brooks, a Democrat, running against Assemb. David McDonough (R-Merrick), who signed earlier.

Hermione Mimi Pierre Johnson, a Democrat, running for the open seat in the 21st Assembly District.

By our count, more than 20 local candidates for State Senate and Assembly are still missing from the list.
