Our voices are having an impact and the Redistricting Commission is dropping the absurd map that connected the Beach Cities to the San Fernando Valley. Unfortunately, one of the new Gerrymandered maps now connects the Beach Cities to Downtown LA and removes the South Bay from the PV Peninsula, and San Pedro. This makes no sense, and we must speak out to stop it!
If this whole process seems ridiculous it is so we need to continue to speak out. Besides creating new maps and new agendas daily, the commission has added more meetings before the final map will be approved on 12/15/21. These will be on 12/10/21, 12/11/21 (Tentatively), then 12/12/21. We will give you updates on each change so you can comment. We just got the update for the meeting tomorrow which is why it is being shared with you now.
The map to retain our unique connected communities of interest in the South Bay is map B-4.
Send a written Public Comment NOW before the meeting by following these steps.
Use this link to make comments for the meeting tomorrow 12-10-21 by 12 noon.
What to do:
- Favor Map B-4
Select Option B-4, click Favor. Then write that Map B4 is the best choice for the county as well as communities of interest in the South Bay and Beach Cities. The South Bay has a harbor, beach, and other coastal issues that impact the area which are reflected in map B4.
- Oppose Map F-3
You can also Select Option F-3, Click Oppose. Then detail the reasons why combining Downtown Los Angeles with the South Bay makes no sense and will undermine our representation in Los Angeles County. This map is the textbook definition of Gerrymandering and must be rejected.
