Wednesday: Supes discuss district boundaries

 

A meeting is set for 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, to discuss the results of five workshops held for the once-a-decade task of adjusting the boundaries of the five supervisory districts in San Mateo County to achieve "nearly equal" populations in each district.

Board action on a final set of redrawn boundaries is set for a meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 13. The meetings will be held in the board chambers on the first floor of the Hall of Justice and Records at 400 County Center in Redwood City.

The League of Women Voters facilitated during the five workshops, each held in a different district.

Copy of my letter to editor

Wake up San Mateo County

In response to to article "County seeks redistricting public input." 9/6/11. Adrienne Tissier, Rose Jacobs Gibson, Carole Groom, Don Horsley, and Dave Pine want your input on this.

I recommend at this critical financial time No change. This is not the time to spend San Mateo County Taxpayer money, and not on this issue.

"Any shift of boundary lines could potentially alter the eligibility of an individual to run for a specific seat."
"Any change in boundaries could possibly bring in areas of Redwood Shores."
For those of you who might not know, there is high profile political figure and friend of the Supervisors who lives in an area of Redwood Shores.
If the Supervisors choose to change the boundaries I would recommend the south end of county be combined with Atherton and part of Menlo Park included in District 4 instead of areas of Redwood Shores, District 2 needs to be adjusted down also to be equal, but there is no mention of that in the article.
Tell them what you think now.DistrictLines@co.sanmateo.ca.us

Supervisor Adreinne Tissier made this comment yesterday. "The need for an economic development person on the board".

"The need for a new jail and the money to fund it also led Tissier to mention the need for an economic development person on board."

Would a SAMCEDA person qualify for Supervisor Tissier? If so that political figure who lives in Redwood Shores would be perfect.
