[SDCPJ] County Redistricting: Action Alert

Speak out for
fair redistricting of
San Diego County


Tues, Sept 6
2 pm

Please RSVP
to Trinh Le:
tle@onlineCPI.org

Tell the County Board
you want fair redistricting

Under pressure from the ACLU and community groups, the San Diego County Board is revising its proposed redistricting map to account for the voting rights of Latinos and African Americans in the First District in South County.  However, the Board is resisting other changes to its self-serving redistricting plan.

Unless we speak up, Escondido will continue to be split off from similar communities along the Hwy 78 corridor and instead remain in District 3 with more affluent communities to the south and west. One of the many negative results of this split is the fracturing of Latino voting power in North County.

In addition, the supervisors plan to move La Jolla into District 4 with Mid-City communities, and Lemon Grove and Spring Valley will be in District 2, divided from similar communities of interest.

Please email and/or send a letter to each of the Supervisors today. Ask them to:
  • Unite the Hwy 78 corridor communities of Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, and Escondido
  • Unite Lemon Grove and Spring Valley with communities of similar interests in District 4.
You can start with a sentence or two from these attached sample letters: (Mid-City/District 4 Letter; North County Letter), and add your own personal knowledge of these communities. Please add your own voice to increase your impact and avoid sending duplicative letters.

Where to send letters:

District 1, Greg Cox: greg.cox@sdcounty.ca.gov
District 2, Dianne Jacob: dianne.jacob@sdcounty.ca.gov
District 3, Pam Slater-Price: pam.slater@sdcounty.ca.gov
District 4, Ron Roberts: ron-roberts@sdcounty.ca.gov
District 5, Bill Horn: bill.horn@sdcounty.ca.gov
