By building up a rationale for designating the election cycle in minority zone D(includes North Fairoaks & downtown RWC) as Presidential(2020) rather than Gubernatorial(2018) the Sequoia Healthcare District sought to create an image of diligent compliance with the California Voting Rights Act. (The Presidential cycle has a significantly higher minority voter turnout) That image was tarnished when they concocted an interpretation of the law which ostensibly prevented the district from holding an election for a 2 year seat for minority Zone D(includes North Fairoaks & downtown RWC) in 2018. The end result? Minority Zone D will have no representation until 2020. But, Zone A will have two directors until 2020, and Art Faro won’t have to move into Zone D to run for re-election. I question the motive of those who precipitated this result.
