Redistricting for California’s diverse communities

For that reason, I am humbled and honored to have been selected as one of fourteen Commissioners on the 2020 California Citizens Redistricting Commission, which is charged with drawing maps for congressional, State Senate and Assembly Districts as well as mapping districts for the four State Board of Equalization seats.
