New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2011
The Stellar Six participate in a debate on the important issue of redistricting New York State.
||Daisy Fuentes (R, C) represented District 53 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator Thomas F. O'Mara. Daisy voted yes for Bill MS-15, because she believed that in order to be honest and equitable the entire body of the Senate must vote in favor of redistricting for the long term, because it would be shortsighted to try to resolve the issue in the short term, without giving due diligence to all of the issues involved in moving the district lines of the state. She indicated, strongly, within her speech that it is not effective to apply a “desperate times call for desperate measures” attitude because it is not an accepted tenet in the body of the senate. Daisy also indicated that she was willing to do anything for the people of her district; to insure that they get fair representation. Daisy is studying Liberal Arts at Hostos and is originally from Mexico. She is a mother and is working towards becoming a Registered Nurse. She is a Hostos Student Ambassador and an executive in the Mexican Club.
