Public meetings ponder redistricting

Submitted By Gwendolyn Mitchell and Lingxia Meng

The Citizens Redistricting Commission is holding a series of public hearings to encourage community participation in the redistricting process. The public hearings will help the Commission to develop the redistricting plan and make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors in June.

California law requires that once every 10 years, following the decennial census, the boundaries of the supervisorial districts be adjusted. This practice ensures equal representation for all. Since 1991, Santa Clara County has convened a Citizens Redistricting Commission to oversee the process and act in an advisory capacity to the Board of Supervisors.

The Citizens Redistricting Commission consists of 11 members: two from each of the five districts and a Chairperson appointed by the President of the Board of Supervisors.

A website is available on the www.sccgov.org main page under Hot Items. If you have questions, contact: Melissa Erickson, Redistricting Program Manager, at (408) 299-5172 or melissa.erickson@ceo.sccgov.org
