New redistricting map finally final
SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The San Diego County Board of Supervisors gave final
approval Tuesday to new district maps, ending a seven-month-long process.
The county's Redistricting Ordinance passed unanimously as part of the
supervisors' consent agenda, with the only comments being to thank those who
served on a commission that created three tentative maps.
The final map, which will be used for next year's elections, pushes the
district represented by Ron Roberts toward the coast and La Jolla, snapping up
some territory currently held by the retiring Pam Slater-Price. It also creates
a district, currently represented by Greg Cox, with a voting-age population
that is nearly 44 percent Latino and 8 percent black.
The district boundaries are redrawn every 10 years in accordance with
updated census data.
